What is it like to live in Platanias?

Have you ever been struck speechless by the beauty of a place? From historic gems with long, sandy beaches to more hidden rocky coves, you’re sure to find a perfect place in Platanias.

Renowned for its charming coastal area and magnificent surroundings, Platanias is the ideal destination to enjoy the Mediterranean breeze and soak up the local culture.

Overflowing with history and exceptional architecture, these delightful little spots situated between the coastline and the impressive White Mountains always have myriad different things to offer and are waiting to be explored.

Platanias is inextricably linked with summer tourism since it has become the base of thousands of visitors who come each year to Crete to enjoy the famous Greek summer and experience the popular Cretan hospitality.
