Plakias Walk 4
The Dragon, a dragon-like rock formation, is probably the most photographed scene in Plakias at sunset. But the views from the Dragon itself back to Plakias and the Bay are no less spectacular. During the walk you also get a bird's-eye view over Souda Beach.
This walk has only 2 small stretches where the road goes up and being constantly right on the coastline gives you some spectacular views. The new harbour and the beach of Souda are little treats on the way. At the new harbour you can have a stroll around, have a look at the fishing boats. At Souda beach are tavernas and a beach bar so it's an ideal spot for a break.
If you feel like walking more you can always, instead of the same way back, walk back to Plakias with the connecting walk 5 (backwards in the directions of this walk).
You will find the directions for this walk below the map (printable for personal use only) and a few photos of the landmarks you will pass. Click on them to see more photos and information on the landmark.
Enjoy the beauty of Plakias and surroundings. Don't forget to leave only your footprints!
