This is on the small side: quiet with deep, clear water, as well as rocks and stones. It is favored by the locals and those keen on fishing. Access is only possible from Plakias. It is actually the last beach of the beachfront of Plakias, called Yialia, which starts at Schinaria, several kilometers away. Souda is located at the exit of a small green valley that is run by the small river Finikas, which has water all year round. Along the river and in several places of the area, there are colonies of the native Cretan palm trees of Theophrastus, making Souda one of the most important reserves for the species.

If you are looking for the best beach to take your children either than the one of Rethymnon town since its quite busy, then you must head towards ''Georgioupolis'' village just 20 km outside Rethymnon town. This is a beach that stretches for 13 km long and it's one of the longest sandy beaches of Crete. The best thing about is that the sea is very shallow so going 20 m in the sea, the water is still just above your knees. You will find a few organized areas with sunbeds, beach bars or restaurants, or if you want more piece, then there is a lot of quiet areas too. Just drive along the motorway and stop where you like best!
