Welcome to Plakias. 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 breath taking, unspoiled landscapes Plakias is the ideal place for a relaxing holiday. The famous Cretan hospitality is well known and you will feel home straight away.
Plakias is more than just hotels and a beach. The immediate surroundings offer countless walks, breath taking views from the surrounding mountains, all sort of 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.
