Plakias Beach, Rethymno

The Beach of Plakias extends east from the village Plakias. It is one of the biggest beaches in Crete, offering a sense of space and comfort to suit every taste – the east end is mainly used by naturists. There are showers all along the beach and many parking spaces. If it’s windy during your stay in Plakias and the northern wind whips you with flying sand, head west to Souda beach. It is more sheltered, with small hotels and a few tavernas. There are other lovely beaches near Plakias at Damnoni, Amoudi and Mikro Amoudi, which is also a naturists’ beach. A little further away are Lefkogia and Schinaria, the preferred beach of scuba divers. For those of you, who enjoy scubadiving, there is a diving centre at the Hotel Calypso near Plakias.
