Previously a small fishing village, Plakias, on the southern coast of Crete in Greece, is now an attractive resort with a huge range of tavernas, restaurants, bars and cafes just waiting to be explored. The resort has become a popular destination in recent years and much of this is owed to its spectacular landscape and mountainous terrain. For plenty of opportunities to relax the main beach is a lovely long sandy stretch which snugly hugs the rich green-blue waters.

There are other accessible beaches within the area too, most notably Preveli, which is an exotic little spot of true beauty, complete with a lagoon and palm trees. Whilst here, it is also worth visiting the historic monastery with its impressive buildings and collection of religious icons and relics. If you’re looking for something more active Plakias also offers plenty of outdoor activities, such as water sports, guided treks, boat trips and mountain biking. Loved by many, from those seeking relaxation in the sun, to nature lovers eager to explore its stunning surrounds and diverse plant and animal life, to walkers looking for a thrilling hike through the nearby gorges of Kourtaliotiko and Kotsifos, Plakias is the perfect holiday destinations.

Be sure to love this beautiful resort from the moment you land, and take advantage of our Plakias transfers from Heraklion Airport for a reliable, friendly service.
