The village of Plakias lies approx. 45mins by car from Rethymnon city. The drive southbound from Rethymnon to Plakias, actually covers the thinnest part of the island from North to South. It is an easy drive down and the most wonderful experience has to be when driving through the Kourtaliotiko gorge. Well-worth a short stop allowing you to be in awe of nature and the high bearing cliffs running up either side of you and the road.

Plakias was only first recorded as a tiny fishermen’s settlement in the 1960’s, grew slightly in the 70’s and more recently became a sought-after destination for holiday-makers. It’s location and ease-of-access from the North to the South, coupled with the long sandy beach and mountainous backdrop have been a recipe for success.

Nowadays, one finds plenty of accommodation on offer and any shops you may desire or need (with the exception of a bank). Local taverns serve fresh fish and seafood to be enjoyed while sitting right next to the sea and quaint, arty souvenir shops offer plenty of choices for gifts to take home. The Libyan sea stretches out ahead of you and mountains surround the coastal village to the North. Move towards the villages of Mirthios and Selia for panoramic views of the bay and the horizon where sea meets sky in total harmony.

If feeling more like an adventure, there is a beautiful coastal trail which can be walked from Plakias to other beaches (more sheltered, in the event of north wind affecting Plakias beach), such as Ammoudi and Schinaria (perfect for scuba diving). Many decide to walk as far as Preveli Monastery but there is also the less well-known monastery of Finikas a little closer. It comes without the picturesque beach, river and palm trees as it is situated in the hills but still has much to offer visitors.

Whatever your preference, Plakias is a great base from which to explore multiple parts of southern Crete. Just rent a car in Crete and off you go! Apex Car Rental services are available in all key locations – rent a car at Heraklion or Chania airport or we can bring one wherever you are located on the island. We aim to be nearby and help you enjoy Crete the easy way, making your holiday stress-free!
