Preveli Beach, Lefkogia

#1 of 45 in Outdoors in Rethymnon Prefecture
Find Preveli Beach, hidden away just below a historic monastery where the lagoon and beach are known locally as "Palm Beach." A grove of palm trees crowds the opening of the Kourtaliótiko gorge that opens onto the sand. Boats from Plakias will bring you from your resort to the site, where you can swim in the Libyan Sea and hike the grove in this relatively isolated location. Although the beach is secluded, there is a small cafe nearby. Consider including a visit to the monastery and a hike through the gorge while you're here. With our international travel planner, Lefkogia attractions like Preveli Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

    Well, be still brave enough to go there! After that all the evil that we give ourselves to achieve is worth it? Yes anyway but be careful at the back, very difficult! Especially with young children! The Palm Grove is beautiful, the water is cold, but it's a really beautiful setting

    The River provides lush vegetation on the beach. So may be you under palm trees and relaxed bathing in the river. Also at West wind, it's OK!

    The path to get there is frankly hard, families with small children to abstain! The water is nice and pleasant, the beach is not very large, the Palm Grove is pretty. Possibility of eating and drinking. There are much better in Crete.
