Plakias Walk 5
One of my personal favourites. The start of this walk is the hardest part with an almost 2 kilometre steep climb up to Sellia, a quiet and authentic mountain village. There are several places to have a drink here and there is also a supermarket.
After Sellia the walk is mostly Cretan flat to the picturesque, renovated Finikas Monastery (The Holy Monastery of the Archangel Michael). On the way you will be spoiled by breath taking panoramic views towards both the Libyan Sea on your left as the mountains on your right. Enjoy the monastery before walking down to Souda Beach where you can have a rest, a swim, food and/or a drink. The coastal road will take you back to Plakias, passing Fotinari Beach and the new harbour.
