is the perfect holiday spot, located on the south coast of Crete. It
is not too large, and so retains the traditional Cretan friendliness,
but it is big enough to have a good range of accommodation, tavernas,
shops etc. The beautiful south facing curved bay in which it sits is
ideal for swimming and sunbathing (nudists / naturists are catered for
at the far end of the bay). The hills behind provide wonderful walks,
on trails through the olive groves and beyond.
have been a regular visitor to Plakias since 1984. I fell in love with
the place on my first visit, and have only missed two years since then.
I want to share a little bit about the place with you, or, if you have
visited, ask you to let me know about your experiences there. But I
also want to use the site to collect your impressions of this lovely
place - and to try to pass on some of mine.
visits since December '98
