White sand, huge expanses of space and just enough facilities. Very clear water for snorkelling. This was our favourite beach by far.

Pristine beautiful beach. One of the best In the cycladic islands Go there in september or june. The sandy beach is long and very quite. However there are typical traditional greek taverns and restaurants along the costal road. You can miss it

Golden sand. The northern part of the beach is nude and secluded. Some ammenities at central part of beach, but great swimming, sunning and relaxation.

I enjoyed this beach... but it was definitely not "semi" nude. I think I noticed one semi nude person, the rest were fully nude. Not a bad thing at all, just not what I expected. My friend and I swam pretty far out to a...More

I'm generally not a beach person, but Plaka won me over. We went far to the South end of it seeking peace and quiet and we found it. Lovely golden sand, very easy and pleasant waters (shallow and sandy floor), unbelievable views of Paros in...More
