The Paraplous Restaurant

Crete , Greece

Wedding Venue Information

The Paraplous Restaurant.

The Paraplous Restaurant stands proudly on the beach in Pigianos Kampos, six kilometres from the city of Rethymno and offers stunning sea views and sunsets. It is a great wedding destination for those who are looking for a wedding in Crete. The beach is a tranquil haven where you can enjoy a refreshing swim or snorkel in the numerous rocky coves dotted around the coast. The area is also a protected nesting ground for the sea turtles that actually lay their eggs on the beach. Maybe you will be persuaded to take a sunset catamaran cruise whilst enjoying wine and cheese nibbles. Wander down to the Venetian harbour, filled with cute fishing boats and lined with tavernas. There is also the Rethymno Lighthouse, built in the 1830’s, a welcome beacon for boats and ships alike. The Historical and Folklore Museum is full of preserved local crafts, like textiles and ceramics and well worth a visit to sample the local history.
