If you are accommodated in Sarti and have a desire to visit some of the secluded beaches nearby than Platania could be a good choice for you. It is located south from Sarti, just a few kilometers from Sykia. A short, dusty road, which ends with a parking space in the shade of platan trees will lead you to this beach.
Platania beach is actually a natural continuation of the public beach in Sarti, separated from it with a rocky cape.
The beach is wide and sandy on the coast as well as in the sea. The depth increases gradually. On the beach there is a beach bar with parasols and sunbeds which you could get by ordering a drink. Most of the beach is available for visitors with their own equipment.
This beach is very nice and not crowded, even during the busier parts of the year, so it’s perfect for people who want to enjoy some peace and silence, and also for families with children because of the sand.
There is no natural shade on the beach, nor are there any toilets, cabins or showers, and you can only use it if you go up to the restaurant.
Besides the beach bar, this beach also has a tavern in its rear which offers affordable prices and a pleasant atmosphere.
South from the Platania beach, there is another cove, less accessible and usually visited by nudists.
