Platanias

is one of the villages along the bay of ▶ Rethymnon on the island of ▶ Crete. The city is 5 kms away, and the eastern end of the bay 8 kms.

The village is frequently also called "Platanes" and even a sign by one of the village entrances shows this name.

One more Platanias lies 9 kms East of ▶ Hania, another one in the Mesara plains, a "Platanes" is near Paleohora, and a "Platania" is in the Amari valley.

In addition there are five "Platanos": one each near ▶ Kastelli Kissamos, Aghia Galini and Mires, and two between the Orno mountains.

So you will be well advised to ask for "Platanias Rethymnou" which means Platanias near Rethymnon: This way everybody will understand which one you are looking for.

This Platanias has many smaller hotels and private apartment facilities, and the shops and restaurants on the scene are prepared for the demands of individual tourism.

There are tavernas, supermarkets, car and motorbike rentals, bistros, discotheques, exchange offices, and ATM machines.

The sandy beach spreads in both directions over a total distance of 15 kms.

During the season, an even wider ranging supply of tourism goods and services can be found in the neighbouring village of ▶ Adelianos Campos.
