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

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

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.

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.

It was beautiful, just hard to walk on.
Lots of restaurants and plenty of room for people to lounge, play in the water and waves.
