Preveli is one of the most famous beaches in Crete, isolated, beautiful and romantic.
This beach is located on the central south coast of the island, just a few km from the monastery of the same name, 43 km from Rethymnon town. You can journey to the beach by car and foot, walking over the mountain ridge from the dirt road, or you can take a boat from Plakias or Agia Galini. The walk is steep and not for the faint-hearted, be careful in hot weather. There are also buses to the monastery and day trips from Rethymnon town.
