Crete's south coast is blessed with some of the finest beaches in the Mediterranean and many of these are just a short drive or even walking distance from Plakias village. The palm beach at Preveli is a unique spot where the palm-fringed waters of the Megalopotamos meet the clear blue Libyan sea, from the little harbour at Plakias you can catch a boat to this most memorable of beaches. Nearer to the village, just 3km walk along the beach road is Souda beach where there are a couple of welcoming tavernas, on the way to Souda there are a couple of smaller beaches where you can stop for a swim. The nearby beaches of Damnoni and Amoudi are also very popular with our visitors. For snorkellers the beach at Skinaria is hard to beat, a small cove with a sandy beach and single taverna. A little further afield but still within an hours drive are the beaches of Ligres and Triopetra delightful unspoilt beaches with terrific sunsets.
