Plakias Walk 14
This walk has a lot of variety, including a bit of adventure. It starts in Asomatos, where you can visit the Papa Michalis Georgoulakis Museum (Oriseum). Then the walk takes you down into the Kourtaliotis Gorge to the Agios Nikolaos chapel and waterfalls before you walk down alongside the river towards the Preveli Bridge and the ruins of Preveli Monastery (Kato).
Take into consideration there are steps down and up, you have to make a small jump and you have to cross the river twice, so your shoes will get wet.
You take the bus from Plakias to Asomatos and back to Plakias from Preveli Bridge. Or you can walk on using walk 8 to Preveli Beach, Lagoon and Palm Forest, and take the boat back to Plakias.
Click on the KTEL logo for the latest up to date bus timetables (choose departure from Rethymno) and check Plakias-Rethymno. For the way back from Preveli Bridge you can also have a look on Plakias-Preveli. Just wave at the bus on the road in front of the bridge, because it is not an official stop.
You will find the directions for this walk below the map (printable for personal use only) and a few photos. On the map you can click on the landmarks for information and more photos.

Enjoy the beauty of Plakias and surroundings. Don't forget to leave only your footprints!
