  40 km south from Rethymnon on a good but winding road. You can also get to Plakias along the narrow coastal road from Hora Sfakion. There is a regular bus service from Rethymnon.


Plakias is not the quiet place it was and can be busy at times


 A lot to choose from in all categories.


Many restaurants


A few shops to cover your basic needs


 Two discos and many bars


A long beach, partly pebbles and partly sand. Beware: Plakias is often very windy and on those days you'll get sandblasted on the beach. See more about the beach here.
