Plakias beach, Kourtaliotis Gorge, Preveli, Myrthios, Kotsyfou Gorge
Exploring the inland area of Rethymnon and heading to the south coast, we reach the Kourtaliotis
gorge, one of the most spectacular natural attractions of Crete. Along its length we see huge cliffs
of limestone, reaching 500 meters in height, full of caves, where many species of birds nest, making
the Kourtaliotis gorge an important biotope.
Afterwards, we reach the historical orthodox monastery of Prevelis that has played a vital role in
the revolt of the Cretan people against their occupants. It is located in a glorious position with an
amazing view of the Libyan sea.
Next we visit the popular tourist destination of Plakias with plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars
along the south coast. It is here that you can enjoy swimming in the clear waters.
On our way back the village of Myrthios is the next destination where you can enjoy
a breath-taking view of The Lybian Sea.
Then, driving through the Kotsyfou Gorge, a place of spectacular wild beauty, we pass several
small traditional villages until we return to Rethymnon.
