Souda beach west of Plakias in Crete

Several tavernas, hotels and pensions are found just west of Plakias. Below the hotels is a small beach that is not visited by so many tourists.

Just over 2 kilometres from here lies the really nice beach of Souda. On the way there you will pass several small beaches and bathing-places with rocks. Don't miss this nice beach if you're in the neighbourhood.

I think that Souda beach is better than the beach in Plakias. The beach has a beautiful location and is partly sheltered from high waves by rocks. Tavernas are located at the far end of the beach.

Souda beach is popular with nudists, just like the beaches east of Plakias are. If you are disturbed by skinny-dippers, you do not have to worry, there is plenty of room, it is a long and very wide beach.

If you stay in Plakias, I recommend you to visit this nice beach. The distance is only a few kilometres.
