Misiria beach

Pervolia, Misiria and Platanias (or Platanes) are three neighbouring suburbs of Rethymnon, located 3-5km to the west of the city. These were once distinct settlements, but have now been incorporated into the urban region of Rethymnon, due to the rise in residential development.

A long stretch of sandy beach lies in front of the three suburbs, which is a part of the larger 13km beachfront starting from the harbor of Rethymnon and ending at Skaleta beach. It is well-equipped with plenty of options for food, drinks and accommodation. Loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) come to this beach to lay their eggs, making it one of the three most important breeding sites for the species in Greece, with more than 400 nests appearing annually on average.

The name Misiria has its origins in the Arabic word for Cairo, Misr. This region is named Misiria due to the fertility of its soil, which is still used to grow many different varieties of vegetables.
