Plakias is a holidays resort situated on the southwest coast of Crete at the shore of the Libyan Sea. The name in Greek means "flat" but the approach and coastline are quite mountainous and dramatic. The mountains and gorges surround the countryside area, which is predominated by a beautiful curved sandy beach. Plakias has a unique feel, which appeals to anyone who normally chooses to stay in a smaller and quieter place. Discover the beauty of this place, the many faces of mother nature, the mystery of the Cretans. Overnight Plakias area.
The Blue Flag awarded beach of Plakias is one of the most famous and at the same time one of the longest beaches in Crete (1.3 km length). Every year thousands of visitors enjoy its turquoise, crystal-clear, cool waters, and sandy coastline. It is a well-organized beach with many comforts (sunbeds, umbrellas), while, at the same time, it is perfect for scuba diving activities, windsurfing and much more. The road along the beach is ideal for walking or cycling. Don’t miss visiting the Kalypso Fjord. The Pirates took refuge inside this sheltered bay, which is a very narrow cove, formed between enormous vertical cliffs. The tiny beach shaped here has sand at its starting point and doesn’t exceed 2m in width! It deepens abruptly and changes to a deep rocky harbor. Today you will not find any pirates, but a swimming spot is formed. You can find sunbeds and umbrellas on the smooth rocks surrounding the fjord. You can also take some scuba diving lessons. That is one of the best places for snorkeling in Crete! Overnight Plakias area.
Plakias is a paradise for people who love to walk in nature. The surroundings are filled with walks on all levels and for all ages! From walking alongside a river, the water canal or the beaches to walk through olive fields, picturesque mountain villages or to the top of a mountain, Plakias has it all! And forget to “leave only your footprints” Overnight Plakias area.
