Plakias is the ideal holiday destination for those who prefer the South island. Plakias has always been the traditional Cretan hospitality, while providing a great variety of tourism infrastructure, housing and accommodation services. Taverns, shops, etc.
The beautiful southern beach of Rethymnon is ideal for swimming, sunbathing (There are nudist beaches if you wish).
The town is built alongside a single street, the beach. Follow this along, and the small port (from where you can catch a boat to several other beaches) and will end on a road leading to Souda Bay after about 3 km. With the sea on one side and shops and hotels on the other hand, you will never feel far from the beach.
