Great little beach with 25 or so beach loungers and a beach bar. Highly recommend it over many other even larger beaches. Worth a trip for sure!

Nice beach, smaller side but surprisingly very accessible. Beach bar for drinks and food, bathrooms and even an outdoor shower. A fair bit of parking and umbrellas and chairs.

Beautiful, clean water but no chairs! The beach is a little challenging to get to and parking was limited. However, there was no charge for the stationery sun shades, you just will be sitting in the sand. They have a cafe with beer, sodas, food, etc which made it nice. There was a changing room on the beach as well. Getting in the water, there are rocks but then gets shallow and sandy. My recommendation is to bring swim shoes or float over the rocks and then stand and walk out. Plenty of room to spread out on the beach and enjoy your time. Would recommend going early!

I update information from a previous review to get Plathiena from Plaka by foot.
To go down from Plaka (turn left after PALAIOS pastry and before the road going up to the castle) is very easy and not tough at all; first follow a path with stones (many plants on the way but around 15 minutes), then a normal road and I took half an hour. To come back (I took instead 45' minutes) the first part it's okay while the second is a bit harder but you can do that. I did at around 14.00/15.00 p.m. and I mean don't forget to bring with you water.
Great landascape with red stones and the blue spot of Plathiena in the distance.

This was an amazing beach with crystal clear water. Try to get there early to secure a nice spot. There are few umbrellas.

Great beach hands down….and good for swimming notwithstanding some of the comments. Tavern is attractive and staff friendly.
Road down in very good shape although a few narrow spots in Plaka.
Highly recommended.

We were on in Milos for a coupe days so we only did a few beaches! We rented a car and our car rental place had some parts of the island off limits due to the terrain. We chose this beach and I'm glad we did! This is a beautiful beach! The water and view is stunning. It's not a rocky beach, nice sand walking in the water. There is a tavern right there for snacks and drinks, both alcohol and non alcohol. Beds can be rented for 18 euro but we just decided to just use our towels since we weren't planning on staying all day.

This may have been our favorite beach on Milos. It's not as popular as some others (although I don't know why) the water is Caribbean blue, there are a few trees for shade (or you can rent a lounge), and the taverna there is excellent!!!

This was the first beach that we visited while staying in Milos, Greece (and the first beach in Greece altogether). Our apartment was in Plaka, and we walked to Plathiena the first day and then again on the third to experience our final sunset on the island. The walk to the beach was @ 1.5 miles and was somewhat barren and picturesque at the same time, with a token pop-up church, of course along the way. There was sand (Greek beaches are known for mainly small pebbles), a beach bar and calm, clear water. I highly recommend as one of the better and moderately to less crowded beaches in all of Milos. #lsma
