Plaka (Chania)

If you’re looking for a less touristy resort in Crete, Greece, Plaka Chania is the ideal place for you. It’s a traditional Cretan village with a lovely main square and typical whitewashed buildings, perfect for a relaxing holiday in the warm Greek sunshine. It’s also close to some of the bigger resorts so if all that relaxation gets a bit too much, you can head to Chania, just 23 kilometres away, which is lively throughout the day and night.

Plaka Chania is close to the western coast of Crete. It sits on a low hill with views down to Souda Bay and the islands dotted in it. The landscape around this little town is full of olive groves, plane trees and organic farms and most of the residents in Plaka Chania are farmers who make olive oil, raki and some wonderful wine. You can try a bottle at one of the village’s tavernas while you watch the sun set over the rolling hills. And if the views of crystal clear waters and sandy beaches are too much to resist, take the two kilometre walk down to the coast, where you can soak up some sun and dine on fresh seafood.
