South Coast

Welcome to South Coast

Approaching from the north, the scenery becomes increasingly dramatic and takes in marvelous views of the Libyan Sea. From the Rethymno–Agia Galini road, it’s a fabulous drive through the rugged Kotsifou Gorge to Plakias. The road to Preveli travels via the equally spectacular Kourtaliotiko Gorge.
