The Area

Plakias Village, on the south coast - directly south of Rethymno about 30 km south of Rethimno small town. It is part of the municipal unit Foinikas.

Plakias Village, a big crescent bay holding a fine beach.

This is quite a busy tourist destination but has a unique feel, which appeals to some who normally choose to stay in smaller, quieter places. The beautiful surrounding countryside, fine walks, and gorges. 

A big crescent bay holding a fine beach between two immense wind tunnels, the gorges of Selia and Kourtaliiotiko.

This is quite a busy tourist destination but has a unique feel, which appeals to some who normally choose to stay in smaller, quieter places. The beautiful surrounding countryside, fine walks, and gorges. 

Plakias is surrounded by mountains to the north and the Libyan Sea to the south. The name in Greek means "flat" but the approach and coastline are quite mountainous and dramatic.

Small hotels and many beachfront restaurants & cafes. The large crescent bay of sandy beach and the harbor provide a varied and yet not too busy destination.

Frangokastello and Sfakia is a pleasant twisting and scenic short drive. Above Plakias, Myrthios affords gorgeous views of the bay, coastline, and sea.

The gorges of Prevelli (and the monastery), Kourtaliotis, and Kotsifos are easily visited. In addition visit the mountain village of Spili, Preveli Monastery, and Preveli beach and the wonderful villages in the hills on the road to Sfakia.

The name in Greek means "flat" because the town stands on an alluvial fan of material that has washed down the Kotsifou gorge directly to the north.

This material has formed along the sea's edge into a long, fine, gold-hued sand beach, which shelves very gradually out into the bay, making it quite safe for swimming and hence, for family holidays.

The history 

Initially just a fishing jetty and a few houses, Plakias developed during the last few decades into a tourist resort. The first official mention of Plakias was in 1961 when it was recorded in a census as the permanent home of six fishermen.

The recorded history of surrounding mountain villages like Myrthios and Sellia goes back to the 10th century when the Byzantine Emperor Nikephoros II Phokas (961 AD) built roads and bridges in order to link those villages, and there are some fragments of wall remaining from a fortified area on a hilltop just northeast of the present main town.

The local area is geographically suitable for a settlement, having plenty of agricultural space, and there may well have been a settlement there since Minoan times.

What to see & do

- The Beach of Preveli is also excellent. The date palm forest and the lake, this is one of the most famous sights in Crete and an area of outstanding natural beauty. The date palms stand along the bank of the river which flows down through the Kourtaliotis gorge (you have to drive up the gorge to get to Plakias), creating an exotic scene. Wander along the paths in the palm forest, relax in the shade of the trees, and swim in the river. Don't miss to visit the nearby Moni Preveli (Preveli Monastery), from this site you have to walk down a lot of steps to reach the beach. Monastery of Preveli, which may have been founded as early as the 10th century CE. Due to its isolated position, it has played an important role in Cretan revolts against occupying forces such as the Nazis in World War II. Plakias is home to the "Youth Hostel Plakias", set in olive groves behind the town, and which is famous among international backpackers as the 'most southerly hostel' in Europe.

- The beach of Frangokastello is divided into the west part and the east part. The sandy beach in front of the Frangokastello castle. The sea is very shallow and it is ideal for little children. The pebbly beach to the west offers a rocky seabed, excellent for snorkeling. The "Orthi Ammos" sandy beach is 10 min on foot east of the castle. An excellent beach with big sand-dunes and crystal-clear water. Since you will have to walk on the sand dunes to get to the beach, it is wise to remember that sand gets burning hot afternoon. Proper shoes are required. The eastern part of this long beach is clothing optional occasionally.
