Plakias is a small fishing village in the southern side of Crete at a distance of 35 km from Rethymno that is recently attracting tourism mainly because of its excellent location. The Plakias beach streches along the coast and it is organised with umbrellas and sunbeds. The far left side is often occupied by nudists.
On the west of Plakias you find the Frangokastello fortress and beach, as well as Sfakia and to the east you have the Preveli beach and Preveli monastery, which makes Plakias an ideal location if you were to explore that part of the island.
Plakias beach is a sandy beach approximately 1.3 km long, organised with umbrellas and sunbeds. The far left side is often occupied by nudists.
