Beaches Between Plakias & Agia Galini

Welcome to Beaches Between Plakias & Agia Galini

No amount of hyperbole can communicate the dramatically rugged beauty of Rethymno’s pristine southern sandy beaches. East of the more popular Preveli Beach, remote and peaceful Ligres, Triopetra and Agios Pavlos are perfect for stress-free escapes surrounded by photogenic splendor and popular with yoga and meditation groups. There’s no megaresort to distort the idyllic ambiance, only a few lone tavernas with modest rooms. Strong summer winds are common on these beaches. There is no public transport to any of them.
