Platania Beach, Platanias

(460+ reviews on the web)
Beach
Take a dip in the warm sea water at Platania Beach, a soft sandy beach decked with colorful sun umbrellas and lounge chairs. Lifeguards watch over this area, as its exposed to the wind and is generally quite wavy. Rent umbrellas and chairs for a fee, but enjoy plenty of game areas and equipment provided for free. You'll also find plenty of restaurants and snack bars within walking distance. The beach is long, narrow, and notably clean, ideal for a long walk--but be advised that the waves and steep drop-off make the waters inappropriate for children. Using our online itinerary creator, Platanias attractions like Platania Beach can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
