Platania beach is a small beach just south of the Sarti beach. This beach has two parts, the main beach and a smaller to the south. Platania is normally used by tourists who stay in the apartments behind the beach or those who want a change from the Sarti beach. The southern smaller part is often frequented by nudists looking for an escape.
Platania has some organization with a beach bar and sun-beds with umbrellas. The taverna behind the beach is often closed.
The beach is sand and has a sandy seafloor that deepens gradually and is good for children.
What’s great about Platania BeachQuiet beach even in the high season. Good sand beach for families.
And what’s not…A car is preferred to get here.
From Sarti drive south towards Sykia. After you exit Sarti the road turns left, on this bend you turn left onto a dirt road that winds to Platania beach.
