Platanias holidays 2020

On the north-west coast of Crete you'll find the small town of Platanias, which bursts at the very seams with life, culture and fun. The strip at Platanias features some of the island's most popular clubs and bars, while the beach provides the perfect place to soak up the sun, and the old town offers plenty of opportunities to explore.

The town is also perfectly placed to explore the west side of the island, a few miles outside of Chania – the second biggest city in Crete – and not too far from plenty of historical landmarks and areas of amazing natural beauty.

With one of the largest beaches in Crete – 7km long – Platanias is ideal for a sandy seaside break and will have plenty to offer for both sunbathers and swimmers. The raucous main strip, splitting the town in two, should be more than enough for anyone out to party, but don't forget that the cosmopolitan hub of Chania is only 20 minutes away along the coast if you're keen to dive in to the big city and discover local favourites for yourself.
