Platania beach is just outside Sarti
, south direction. It is a large sandy cove with saturated blue water, surrounded by low green plants. A decade ago Platania was a place without any facilities but its close proximity to Sarti turned it into a small neighborhood of houses with rooms to rent - some of them directly on the beach, others spread along the main road which passes above Platania. There is also a taverna in one of the beachfront houses.
The beach is long and wide, with soft sand. Sunbeds and parasols are provided by a beach cantina in the summer but they occupy just a small part of Platania and there is plenty of space for everyone. Just next to the beach there is one more cove which is accessible on foot via short coastal path. It has the same vivid blue color and sea but no facilities at all and sometimes naturists can be spotted.
