Heraklion taxi provides private transfers from Heraklion airport to Plakias.
Plakias 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.
I 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.
