Spend your day at the wonderful beaches of Plakias, Crete
Plan your holidays to Plakias Crete to enjoy the famous Cretan blue waters, the warm sand, and the exquisite sunlight. Sit back and relax at one of the region’s major attractions, the Plakias Beach, the long beachfront, also known as Gialia, extending to the east for 1.3 km, up to Cape Mouri. It is a well-organized, kid-friendly beach with blue-green waters where everyone can swim, dive or lie down under an umbrella or a tamarisk tree.
Alternatively, visit Calypso Beach Crete, where you can find a remarkable scenery of impressive rocks surrounding the bay, cool waters, and a mythical atmosphere that goes back in time when it was the setting of an old historic pirate shelter. Opt for some action and prepare to explore the Cretan seabed - the area is considered an ideal place for scuba aficionados looking to dive deeper into the majestic underwater world.
