Holidays to Plaka
Crete is an island paradise of blissful beaches, dreamy waters and rugged landscape. The fishing village of Plaka on the northern coast remained undiscovered by tourists for decades and holds much rustic charm and unspoilt scenery. Plaka sits on Mirabello Bay, one of the largest bays on the Mediterranean, and close to the chic harbour town of Agios Nikolaos.
This pebble beach, with its crystal clear waters and tamarisk trees, is within easy reach of Plaka’s main hotel.
