We drove here on our tour round Crete.OK the beach was nice and the palm trees lovely but we have seen nicer beaches and it was very over crowded.
We went by boat and had a nice day out, the setting is lovely and the beach is good, the forest interesting however just far too many people for us. The geese are amusing but the people aren't !
Boat trip from Plakias us the best part. Not a sandy beach but lovely Palm Walk. One taverna - not great selection of food. No sun beds. Must shelter under olive trees to get some shade.
Strange place indeed. If you want to go there, youwon't find the nicest beach in the island, the water isn't clear and you'll find rocks in the sea. Of course the river coming from the mountain through the Palm Tree Forest is a curiosity. After parking your car (2€/car), you will have to deserve it, since you have to walk... 更多
Sometimes you have to do a bit of work to find that perfect spot. Here you have to walk down 490 uneven steps, having parked in the car park above ( costs €2). Beach is fine pebbles with clear seas. The gorge behind is full of palm trees , you can walk along the river. There is a small taverna... 更多
Locals told us about this beach and we had high expectations but not worth it. Not easy way to go there and you need good shoes to pass through the rocks. After that is not easy to find shade.
Visited Plam Beach whilst driving through. Is around a 30 minute drive from Rethymnon and once there you pay €2 for parking. After that, you have about a 10-15 minute down rocky stairs, probably not ideal if with young kids. Once at the beach, it is picturesque but not stunning. It's not sand but little pebbles/shingles. Only saw 1 place... 更多
A really nice beach and location! The river that comes out fo a gorge, ending to the beach!! But, have in mind that you will have to park at the public parking (2 euros cost) and will have to walk around 30 minutes down the hill to access the beach!
Visited plakias during a very windy period and beach was out of bounds so visited palm beach as it was sheltered. You have to pay to park and then it's a 10min walk down rocky steps - be careful with toddlers. There is a taverna and showers and the setting is beautiful with the river flowing down. Shingle rather than... 更多
Instead of taking the boat we decided to drive and go from the hill's path. Well, to be honest we would have preferred it if was either Spring or Fall because of the heat but anyway the view is amazing. When reaching out destination we went directly to the sea. It's rocky and a bit slippery but the disappointing part... 更多
