  1. The beach looks rocky like many European beaches. But the water looks heavenly! We are travelling to Europe later this year! Where is this please?

  2. I am afraid, there is a mistake here. This is not “Plakias beach”, but “Sweet Water beach” or “Glyka Nera” (in Greek) near Hora Sfakion.

    1. Indeed, you are right! I just went in to fix it, but there’s a glitch someplace that won’t let me change it. I’ll keep working on it, but that is definitely Sweetwater. One of our favorite places on the planet! 🙂

  3. I was going to suggest that the beach wasn’t Plakias as well. I agree that Sweetwater is a wonderful place, the restaurant at the end of this bay was the only place we wore anything at this beach, they insisted on something mininimal while eating there. The name as you may well know comes from the fact that the water that you can find in a few small pools is drinkable, and quite sweet, unless some idiot(s0 have put soap in it as had happenned once when we were there in the 1990s. The water source attracts quite a few people who camp there. It really is a wonderful place for nudists, beyond the restaurant there were many times when we were there that everyone was naked, which is always a nice environment to find yourself in. It takes about 45-60 mins to walk to Chora Sfakion to the east or there are small boats that will fery you from the town.

    1. I am not sure why the comment about this beach looking like it was rocky was made, or about that being how many European beaches are, I do not recall it being rocky at Sweetwater, I’ve been there 6 times. Sure, there are rocky beaches in Europe, just as I’ve found there to be in all of the other continents that i have visited – all of them bar Antartica.
