Platania beach is long, so there is plenty of space for you. There is not a lot of shade, so beware of the sun. The water is clean, Nice place for a swim.

Good clean beaches, plenty of sun loungers, safe swimming although the water was cold at this time. Jet skis available for hire as well as sub aqua schools and boat trips including snorkelling opportunities.

Platania Beach is a clean, nice beach, perfect for a quiet vacation. The sea is quite deep and waves can be very high, but this is a beach on the open sea. Not very crowdy, full of terraces.

A nice pebble beach where you can enjoy a dip in the ocean, without having to worry about the mess of sand. Lovely cool breeze and beautiful views
