Sport and Entertainment

The fine sandy beach of ▶ Plakias (8 kms) is famous not only for the beauty of the landscape but also because of the crystal clear water.

There are many watersports on offer such as scuba diving, waterski, wind surfing, wetbikes, and pedaloes.

From the Farangi Apartments there is also a path running down with the Kourtaliotoko Creek to the palm beach of Preveli (6 kilometers).

Health Tourism

The dentist Evi Papadaki-Ninou (University of Erlangen-Nuremburg, Germany) has her office in the city of Rethymnon, and just around the corner there is the prosthetic dentistry plant cretadent where they use tools and material from Germany as well.

Holiday-makers who speak English or German can therefore use their vacation for having dental crowns, pontics, dentures etc. manufactured and applied.
Due to the low wage level in Greece, dental prosthesis is much cheaper here.
Weddings in Crete

In Rethymnon in a side lane of the beach road, there is a small enterprise which specializes in professional organization of private events.

Annika Schneider and Caroline Austen who run the "moments" enterprise are experts. They arrange weddings, engagements, vow renewals, honeymoons, anniversaries, baptisms, jubilees, birthdays and other festivities in the entire area of Rethymnon.

Costa Costa's

optician's workshop hides in the Gherakari street in the inner city of Rethymnon.

Costantino Costa passed his professional training in Italy and then worked at Duesseldorf (Germany) for some time before he came to Rethymnon in 1996.

In Greece, the low wage level makes glasses and contact lenses considerably cheaper than in many other countries.
Tools and materials do however not suit for saving expenses, as for quality reasons they are predominantly ordered from Germany and come at their prices.
Friends of Animals - Rethymno, inc.

cares for the animal welfare in the area of Rethymnon. Here in Crete, this predominantly means to find caring owners for stray dogs and cats, mainly abroad.

Many animal lovers already help during their holidays and e.g. drive pets to the airport or volunteer as flight escorts.

More active help is always very welcome, and so are donations.
