About the Charming Beach and TownPlakias was once a peaceful and picturesque fishing village on the waterfront in southern Crete. Today the spot has become a charming little town, with beaches reminiscent of the Far East.
It is hidden in a small bay and apart from landscapes, a pleasant atmosphere and a sea breeze, it is one of the most popular places on the island and a favorite haven for beach lovers. The sandy beach is great for swimming and water sports, it is well organized and ideal for a full day's entertainment.
In the surrounding area, one can go hiking. If you choose to head east towards Damnoni you will find more isolated beaches, some of which are even nudist beaches.
