schöne Bucht, teils grober Sand, teils Kies. Teilweise mit Liegen u. Schirmen versehen. Am Ende der Bucht führt ein kleiner Bach zum Meer.
We know, and have visited nearly all the various beaches around Plakias, and somehow or other left this until last. Big mistake on our part! We'll be back again next year as it ticks all our boxes for family beach days. Great snorkelling to be had along the rock faces where you just lose yourself with the fish. A couple of tavernas right beside the beach offer shady respite from the hot sun with lunch and dinner options. Just remember the naturists occupy the left hand side of the beach as you face the sea. We're no prudes, each to their own, but our kids just weren't quite ready for that!
An hour by car from Rethymno. No charge for chairs, and the water was great. Snorkeling on the right side along the rocks is fantastic, albeit not the Carribean. Shower available, as are tavernas for a nice drink. We had a fantastic lunch in Sellia on the way back but we couldnt find it listed. They have a trip advisor sticker on the door.
Souda is about 50/60 min walk from Plakias along a quiet coast road. It is a very quiet beach kept very clean with lovely water, but the sea here is very deep. It very quickly drops away so I would not say it is suitable for children, but it is good for divers and snorkellers. It has 2 beach tavernas.
Love this little beach with towering cliffs at the end, sheltered little bay and we had some interesting visitors greet us, sun lounges and umbrellas free if you buy something at the cafe nearby, I don't know who owns the ducks or geese but they were cute see video
This beach was really nice and if the wind blows it is sheletered. It has a beach Kantina and two Tavernas which are a great place for a snack and drink.Be careful when entering the beach you may see more than you bargained for at one end(furthest from the Tavernas)
It's a silent Beach With 3 Places to eat a lunch. The sand is With small stones With lovely Clear water. A thing that we disliked was the sunbed's. They where too old and withinn 5 min you couldn't lie on them anymore, so we left. It need a "facelift" here.
Really good beach for young children with small waves and shallow water but be aware of the nudists, big sign saying that it's not welcome but they obviously don't read English or Greek.
Another wonderful place in Crete. Clear beach and water at the sea, there are some trees for people who prefer shadows. The best time to find good spot and parking is early at the morning.
Lovely beach, when its windy it is more sheltered than the main beach. Water brilliant for swimming and many rocks great for snorkeling round. And of course the pleasant, friendly sun bed attendant Harry, always at the ready with a smile.
