Platanias Airport Transfers
The idyllic village of Platanias is situated in western Crete close to the city of Chania. Set amidst stunning scenery, its air scented by citrus groves, and boasting a gorgeous golden sandy beach stretching in an elegant curve, it certainly has a lot to recommend itself. There is a pretty island in the Mediterranean Sea which lies adjacent to the resort, the island of St Theodori, which houses the remains of an old chapel and is now used as a rearing place for the Cretan mountain goat, the kri-kri. The area around Platanias is also one of the last nesting places for sea turtles, now a critically endangered species, and so it is important that visitors respect the beautiful coastline in the hope of preserving, and maybe spotting, these marvellous creatures. The Old Town bears the evidence of a rich cultural heritage in its traditional architecture built from stone and wood, and is lovely to wander through during relaxing afternoons. If you are keen to explore the surrounding area then do not miss the lagoons of Elafonisi, the ancient centre of Falasarna, the vibrant Chania or Kissamos, or the Samaria gorge beginning in the White Mountains. With Crete Chania Airport only 30 minutes away by airport shuttle or airport taxi and Crete Heraklion also nearby, why not sample its delights for yourself?
