We liked that beach very much, fine sand, clear water in all shades of blue, never too crowded, lots of nice little taverns and - very important for us - 2 sunbeds with umbrella to rent for 5 Euros a day.

Lovely wide beach, and quite long too. Lovely to watch a sunset here and fun place for kids to have swim too !

Large beach with sandy shores and clear waters. Lots of organized options, tavernas and mini markets. You can either pay a reasonable amount for sub bed and umbrella or find your own spot. Nudist options available.

Brown sand. Not really a calm beach. Quite a big beach. Too many properties on this big stretch of beach. Water is cold.

I think that there is not much interest in snorkeling in most plaka because of its sandy style.Maybe there are some spots but i dont no exactly where.
