Clean and beautiful, huge beach with plenty of space. Lots of bars albeit of varying standards and many with sun loungers

“lovely sandy beaches”

warm seas even in october!
Short beaches but still lovely
Visible lifeguards made us feel safer although the sea was fairly calm there were some string undercurrents

“Too overcrowed”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Looked too overcrowed even off season. Sunbeds were standing toooo close to one another. I can't imagine what happens there in high season!

“Nice beach”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

lovely beach, nice breeze to keep you cool. We loved the beach as it was not very crowded and enough beds to choose a quite spot near to the bars. No pedlars when we visited at the end of September 2013. Sandy in places with spots that have fine gravel. Rocky in some places which is better for snorkelling. beds at 5 euro a pair with parasol and plenty of choice.

“Sandy rocks.”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Platanias beach is a nice beach, it's nice that there is a lot of places you can go and eat it while being right by the ocean. The beach itself though isn't the best, there is a lot of rocks by the water and the sand isn't super soft. It's a beach you can't expect that much from it since it pretty much changes from how the water is, or how much the water brings I should say.
