Rent a car from Elan Car Rental and visit Plakias, which is a small village at the south coast of Rethymnon prefecture, only 30 min drive from Rethymnon city. Plakias is famous for its long, wide beach backed by tamarisk trees. It is a terrific south cost retreat for those who want to get away from it all without completely leaving civilization behind.

Here you can find many hotels, bars restaurants and do water sport activities. You will taste authentic traditional Cretan recipes and enjoy the local wine. Plakias could be your base to swim in the crystal blue sea and to explore all the nearest sandy beaches like Damnoni, Ammoudi, Schinaria, Souda and Agios Pavlos.

Elan’s Cars can drive you to the pure paradise of southern Crete.
