Beautiful beach in South-Crete Mar 13, 2013
I've been going to Plakias for 10+ years and just love it. OK it's a bit of a drive from the airport but that is what makes it special. Fantastic scenery in and around the village and several wonderful beaches to pick from.

The village itself is fairly laid back and relaxed. Nightlife not frantic, but enough choice of bars and good restaurants. Prices also considerably lower than the bigger Cretan resorts.

The beach of Plakias is by my estimation about 2km long in a horseshoe. The beach runs in front of the village. So as you stand on the beach in the village, to your right (east) the beach is rocky and there was virtually no one on it. Likewise there was no one on the beach in the village area. So that leaves the largest portion of the beach to the west. At the far end of the beach under the cliffs tend to be an area for Naturalists.
