Plakias is a little gem on the south coast of Crete, Greece.
This old fishermen town has a certain magic over it that cannot be explained, only felt. Away from the mass tourism in the north and surrounded by breathtaking, unspoiled landscapes Plakias is the ideal place for a relaxing holiday. The famous Cretan hospitality is well known and you will feel like home straight away.
Plakias is more than just hotels and a beach. The immediate surrounding offer countless walks, breath taking views, water sports and authentic little mountain villages. From the old harbour there are daily boat trips to several gorgeous beaches and places like Loutro, which can only be reached by boat.
This village is very well organized, hosting plenty of hotels, restaurants, bars, shopping centers, water sports, scuba diving schools, organised beaches, rented bikes and many more. The area has all basic infrastructures such as marina, shops, banks, petrol stations, surgery and dental practices, pharmacy, post office, etc.
One of the favorite attractions for visitors of Plakias is the old windmill, which is located 1.5km away from the village. Moreover, in the area of Paligremnos, namely the eastern edge of the long beach, there are large caves that have been dug by the Germans during the Occupation. At this point, which is also called Gonates (i.e. knees), there is a huge vertical cliff, where locals say that the legendary hero Digenis Akritas knelt and drank water from one of the many springs in the region.
