Still in 1961, Plakias was a village of just six fishery families and even today our local secret is home to no more than 300 people.
The main beach of Plakias is about 1.5 kilometers long and it's surrounded by endless mountain ranges. This is the perfect place to let all the stress from home drift away and give your body and mind some pure chillaxation. Enjoy the beach, be yourself in a lighthearted atmosphere and play beach volleyball until the sun sets over the mountains taking a dip in the sea.
The motto for our Beach Camps is "Come as a player and leave as a friend".
Because of this we value the side events with you nearly higher than our time together on the courts. Whether it is; an excursion in the mountains or by the sea, a mountaineering or bike ride, a social camp dinner or just a fun evening at the beach bar, we have loads of ideas and together we choose what we feel like doing. Could it be you also only wanna spend the sunny days on the beach court?
In our beach volleyball camp the courts are exclusively reserved for our guests. This is to make sure that you can play all day with your friends or pick up a challenge from the other players. We have also made sure you have free access to volleyballs when you need them. We welcome beach volleyball players of all levels to this super chill camp. Beginners, hobby players, advanced and tournament players.
If the morning trainings aren’t enough for you and you’d like to train and learn more. Then make sure to book private training sessions with the Volleytours coaches. Work alone, with the coach, or with friends. Just talk to the coach, of your choice, onsite and he will help you bring your game to the next level.
Twice each camp week our beach heats up a little extra. On Sunday afternoon, we play the welcome tournament for everyone who already arrived. This is the best way to get to know the other participants. Come Friday we battle it out in the final tournament of the week. The goal is to have everyone play as much as possible in both tournaments. Therefore, we always decide on the format based on the number of registered participants shortly before tournament. Players of all levels are welcome. If you register without a partner we try to find a partner for you.
The family-run and cozy Paligremnos Studios, located at the very end of the sandy beach of Plakias, has just 18 rooms. The accommodation is rated "fabulous" on booking.com and can be booked for up to four people. The self-catered rooms have free Wi-Fi and a balcony, overlooking the Cretan Sea or the mountain range. All rooms have air conditioning, a well-equipped kitchenette with a fridge and coffee maker and a dining area. The rooms also have a private bathroom with shower.
Free private parking is available on site.

BOOKING & GETTING THERE
The travel period for our beach camps in Crete is always set to 6-8 days. Saturdays and Sundays are planned as arrival days, so that you have no time pressure getting there. The departure takes place the following weekend at the time of your choosing.
Accommodation and camp, including training is booked directly on our website or by email request. We do not offer camp participation with external accommodation. You just have to take care of getting to Plakias and we take care of the rest :)
On Crete there are two larger airports. You organize your own transportation to the camp. Book your flights to Chania (CHQ) or Heraklion (HER). To get a good flight overview and prices you can use services like Skyscanner and Google Flights.
A standard taxi to our beach costs about 100 € per trip which means that renting a car is a good option. With a car you are more independent and flexible to see more of the surroundings. Use services like rentalcars.com and similar search engines to search for affordable rental cars.
Traveller tip! Pay close attention to the rental conditions and especially included kilometers. What seems to be a bargain can turn out to be a shitty deal at the end.
