Plaka is the seaport of Leonidio. In recent years, because of the beautiful coastline, there has been some development of tourism. The last ten days of August after the harvest of eggplants, a series of cultural events take place (eggplant festival). There is an emphasis on local culture (traditional dances and songs) and of course there is also a cooking competition with recipes based on eggplant. Near the village, are the ruins of ancient Prasies.
