Plakes Beach is sited about a kilometre before the town of Maltezana. You will find it easily as there is a relevant sign before the beach. There is also a local bus stop on the main road. To reach the beach, you take an easy downhill pathway. Then, you can choose between the pebbly side of the beach on your right and Plakes Beach on your left. For those who like to dive wearing goggles, Plakes Beach offers a rich underwater eye-experience. It should be noted that it is protected from the – in cases variable – weather conditions, something that makes the beach a “safe swim shelter” during the difficult – in aspect of weather – days of August. It should also be mentioned that Plakes is not an organized beach.
