How to get to Preveli palm beach with your rental car.  

Preveli Palm beach


Preveli Palm beach is located about 35km south of Rethymno city and 10km east of Plakias.


You have two basic options for accessing Preveli, from the west or east. The first option is to drive with your rental car from Plakias to the Monastery Preveli.1.5km after the Monastery, you will stop at a large parking lot, where a path that descends to the beach starts. The parking is located near towering vertical cliffs, west of the beach, where you can take some great photographs. To reach the beach walk the footpath that takes about 15-20 minutes. However, return is a little bit tough as the ascent is rather steep.

To avoid the difficult climb, you can alternatively drive with your rental car in the dirt road leading to nearby Drimiskiano Amoudi and walk the short path that leads to Preveli in just 5 minutes. However, you won’t have the chance to see the spectacular view from the tall cliffs on the west side. Lastly, there are small boats running to Preveli from Agia Galini and Plakias.

So just rent a car and explore all those great beaches like Preveli palm beach .
