Platanes

Home to one of Crete’s biggest and best beaches, Platanes has it all. With bars, discos, cafés, restaurants and tavernas, you’ll never be short of something to do. There’s also crazy golf, water sports and sun loungers for hire on the beautiful 8 kilometres of sandy beach. As well as welcoming sunbathing holiday makers, Platanes beach has some other regular visitors. Sea turtles make their nests on the beach, ready for the eggs to hatch at night, offering amazing opportunities to meet these incredible creatures.
