6. Preveli

For zoom-in, click the image.

The view down to Preveli Beach with the deep blue Libyan Sea in the background is nothing short of spectacular. Just a glimpse will make you think that the steep descent down a stone walkway will be worth the effort–and you will be right. If you aren't up for the walk, you can always take a boat from Plakias.

The beach is set between two steep hills and has a freshwater stream flowing through the center. Just back from the beach, you'll find palm trees, which creates the feeling of a green oasis in an otherwise dry area. There are no chairs or umbrellas for rent here, so come prepared.

The water is clear, but note that the beach is made up of pebbles. The walk up and down is not to be underestimated. It is rocky, and in some areas stone stairs are in place. Sturdy walking shoes are recommended, and be sure to keep some water in reserve, as going back up in the blazing afternoon sun can be sweaty work.

If you have your own car, just follow the signs to the Preveli Monastery, as you get close, the road splits to the left down to a large carpark on the top of a hill. The trail down starts from here. If you are only interested in a glimpse from above, walk to the top end of the parking area and just beyond for views down over the beach.
