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 Beach
Quiet 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.
