Plakias is a little gem located on the south coast of Crete, Greece.

This former settlement for the fishermen from the neighbouring mountain villages has a certain magic over it that cannot be explained, only felt.

Plakias is more than just hotels and a beach. Being surrounded by an oasis of natural diversity, picturesque mountain villages, breath taking gorges, mountain tops with spectacular views and a great variety of beautiful beaches Plakias is an ideal place for both a relaxing and/or an active holiday. The immediate surroundings offer many historical landmarks, countless walks and all sorts of water sport as well.

The Cretan food is to die for and the hospitality on Crete is well known and you will feel at home straight away.

Plakias is also great starting point for amazing daytrips whether it's by car, local buses or a tour operator. From the old harbour there are daily boat trips to several gorgeous beaches and places like Loutro and Marmara beach, which can only be reached by boat or by foot, or you can hire your own little motorboat for the day.
