Plaka is a lovely little village, set out in a horseshoe shape on the hillside, with excellent views of Almyrida, Souda Bay and the azure Sea of Crete.

The village is green with plants, and largely preserves its natural environment, as it is set on the slopes of Mount Drapanokefala with its verdant, varied vegetation. 

Plaka has around 400 inhabitants, nearly half now are foreigners - mainly British. The village largely preserves its traditional character, and there is a tribute to Fiddler on the Roof which was filmed in and around the area.
Plaka has a lovely main square/triangle(?) which is the focal point of the village. This is where locals and visitors alike meet in the pleasant cafeterias and kafeneia.

The local inhabiltants of Plaka are mostly farmers, and the production of olive oil, wine and tsikoudia (raki) is widespread.
