Apart from Plakias's huge main beach there are some pretty coves around the headland to the east and a lovely beach to the west. Some of the coves in 1984 were only accessible on foot or motorbike but I daresay someone has paved the way by now.
The beach to the west was empty apart from a couple of shepherds and their sheep.
Today I don't suppose we would even recognise these places.

Address: Plakias
Directions: To the east end of the main beach. I remember we had to go inland to get to these beaches over the headland.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
