"Platanias" Platanias by sa_va

Platanias Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 9 photos


The village of Platanias is lively beach-front resort on the north coast of Crete. If you like a place where there are thousands of Scandinavian tourists, this is the place for you...

Platanias has plenty of bars and restaurants. The price level is affordable and service is usually very good.

There are quite a few tourist attractions on Crete. There are bus tours from Platanias to the main attractions.


Take a bus tour to South Coast to the wonderful Elafonissos. This was the highlight of our trip. Wish we would have had more time to spend here.

The road to Elafonissos is beautiful with mountains and valleys on each side of the road.
