The village of Platanias and the beach of Platanias near Chania on Crete
Platanias is one of the tourist villages in the northwest of Crete along the main road and the sea between Kolimbari and Chania. The area is rather flat and it consists of one village / hotel after another. Real authentic Greece is not te be found here. It is more a world of concrete and fastfood restaurants. The village attracts the tourists because of its three kilometer long and 35 meter wide beach. It is sometimes refered to as the Chersonissos of the west, but it is less touristic than that and the beach is much larger, wider and better. There are many hotels, apartments and taverna's. It's a good place for people that want to be in a more lively surrounding and that are looking for a stylish hotel.
