Plakias is one of the most popular resorts in Crete and even further. It is situated almost 36 km south of Rethymno City. Thousands of visitors visit Plakias every year to admire and enjoy the 1.4 km long sandy smooth beach.
The waters are crystal clear, ranging from green to deep blue. The beach is very well organized with umbrellas and sun beds, water sports, beach volley fields, snack bars, douches etc. The road along the beach is equally long, perfect for a walk or for cycling. Furthermore, in Plakias you will find many traditional taverns promising only the best of Cretan Cuisine. Plakias is also a popular destination for climbers from around the world who come to try their skills on Paligremnos. Should you encounter strong winds retreat to Souda, an equally wonderful beach just two kilometers west of Plakias.
