Location

Situated 33km far from Rethymnon, at the Southern coast of Crete, at the Libyan Sea, Plakias is a popular tourist resort, well developed and offering full facilities to the visitors. The village has approximately 180 permanent residents.

It is worth hiking the Kotsyfou gorge starting off the small village of Kanevos, 5km at the North of Plakias, and ends up close to Plakias. The gorge has a length of 1.800m; its entrance is quite narrow, approximately 10m wide, whereas at the exit its width reaches the 600m. The slopes of the gorge are very steep, with a height reaching the 600m. Within the gorge you will find the tiny church of Aghios Nikolaos.

If you have a car it is worth driving around to the scenic villages of the area as Myrthios, 3km far from Plakias at the North, to the villages Sellia, 5km at the Northwest and Mariou, 6km at the Northeast. Also, don't miss to visit the small and picturesque coves of the beach, offering a fascinating view of the Libyan Sea.

If you are fan of local history and tradition, you should visit the Papageorgoulakeion Museum, which in fact is the personal collection of the priest M. Georgoulakis. The Museum is found in the village Assomatos, some 13km far from Plakias at the East and you may see items and artefacts from traditional activities and everyday life, as well as religious artefacts, weapons and souvenirs from the period of Ottoman domination, up to the 20th century.

Two local feasts ("panighyri") take place in honor of Aghios Georghios (St. George) and Aghia Paraskevi at Plakias, another on the 8th of September in honor of the Birth of Virgin Mary at Lefkogia and the very well known local feast on the 15th of August, in honor of the Assumption of Virgin Mary at Sellia.

Accommodation of any kind and for all budgets is plenty; you may find hotels, rooms to let, studios and apartments. Food and drink is never a problem; taverns, restaurants and cafes are abundant, offering a wide range of tastes. There are also some bars and clubs for nightlife and amusement.

The beaches of the area are all beautiful, suitable for swimming and some of them offer sea sport facilities.

Access from Rethymnon is possible by public bus and rented or private car and motorbike.

In summer small boats can get you to the beach of Preveli, just at the mouth of the river Kourtaliotis. Boats leave Plakias in the morning and return in the afternoon (it is advised to check the timetable at the port of Plakias).

Plakias is the perfect holiday spot, located on the south coast of Crete. It is not too large, and so retains the traditional Cretan friendliness, but it is big enough to have a good range of accommodation, taverns, shops etc. The beautiful south facing curved bay in which it sits is ideal for swimming and sunbathing (nudists / naturists are catered for at the far end of the bay). The hills behind provide wonderful walks, on trails through the olive groves and beyond. The town is built alongside a single street, which runs by the beach. Follow this along, past the small harbour (where you can get a boat to several other beaches) and you'll end up on a rough track leading to Souda Bay (nice beach) after about 3km. With the sea on one side, and the shops and hotels on the other, you never feel far from the beach. Small roads lead off the main street, with apartments, shops, taverns etc. to catch your attention. Follow one of these small streets as far as you can, and you'll probably end up in an olive grove, and there are tracks lead up to the villages of Mirthios and Sellia, nestling in the hills. Mirthios is really unspoilt, and there is an excellent tavern there which makes the walk worth the effort. (Take a torch if you are walking down again in the dark)

Everything you need is available in Plakias – shops, supermarkets, plenty of places to eat and drink, and two discos. There is no bank (or hole in the wall) yet – but you can easily change money in most places. There are several travel agents – which are the places to check first if you want to do an excursion. You may well find prices a lot cheaper than those offered by your holiday company's reps.
