Plakias Beach Swimming Trip


Starting from the horse riding center in Damnoni, the riders are heading west with direction to Plakias beach. The riders follow a path through meadows of flowers and olive groves where they can enjoy the flora and fauna of south Crete as well as the view to the Plakias beach. Eventually they will reach the central beach of Plakias which is about 1.4 km long.

The riders can try a slow or quick ride in the sandy beach beside the waves. In specific points of the beach, where the waters are shallow and the bottom of the sea is quite smooth, the riders can try to swim with their horse. Swimming is very enjoyable for the horses that can participate in games with their riders and go to deeper waters. Apart from this, they will enjoy the panoramic view of the Plakias bay, the villages Myrthios and Sellia located on the hills above Plakias, and the mountains around. This trip occurs only early in the morning or later in the evening. Our guests should be advanced riders and good swimmers.
