Plakias Beach, Crete

On the south coast of Crete, between mountains and the Libyan Sea, lies Plakias, a tiny fishing village whose population swells during the summer months. Popular with backpackers, many of whom come here to stay in the most southerly youth hostel in Europe, Plakias is also a favorite with nudists, who can swim and sunbathe in the buff along the 1,300-meter (0.8 mile) Plakias Beach. Beyond the nudist strand, Plakias offers several beach options (Ammoudi, Damnoni, and Souda), mountain hikes and casual tavernas. Nearby, Mona Preveli, one of the most famous monasteries in Crete, is a worthwhile daytrip.
