Coastal Village in Crete

Pighianos Campos

means "the plains of Pighi", and Pighi is a village above the eastern half of the bay of ▶ Rethymnon on the island of ▶ Crete. So Pighianos Campos is the flat areal between the village and the coast.
 
The bigger hotel sites of the region concentrate here and in the neighbouring village of ▶ Adelianos Campos, followed by wide ranging gastronomic, sports and leisure facilities, and of course the whole bandwidth of Mediterranean watersports.

At Pighianos Campos, things however run more leisurely than in the neighbouring village. Mainly at nighttime, as the number of restaurants and bars located here is far less.

There is only one bigger hotel resort and some medium-size ones, but in exchange there are several friendly private apartment facilities which mostly have their own swimming pools.
 
photo By the main road there are tavernas, supermarkets, car rentals, bistros and ATM machines, and the shops and restaurants on the scene are prepared for the demands of individual tourism.

The beach of Pighianos Campos is similar to the one of the neighbouring village, but during the season less crowded.

The major watersport facilities concentrate at Adelianos Campos as well.
