Plaka is a tiny, only 250 meters long, pebbly beach with very clean sea of medium depth, situated at a distance of some 63 kilometers southwestern to the town of Samos. Found at the western coast of the island, the beach is open to the west and it is not much protected from the winds. It is a totally secluded beach, ideal for those preferring to swim and sunbathe almost alone.
The place does not offer accommodation facilities, neither near the beach, nor in the broader area; the area of Marathokambos is the nearest place to find lodging. Also, there are no facilities for eating and drinks, so don’t forget to bring along at least some water.
The beach is not organized at all and it offers you only the chance of a nice solitary swimming far from the town of Samos, in an intact natural environment.
In case of health problems, you should go to Marathokambos, some 22 kilometers to the East, where you will find a local Medical Center and a pharmacy.
Access to the beach from the town of Samos is possible by private means (car and motorbikes) via Marathokambos. You will take the road leading to Kallithea and follow the signs showing the direction of Palaeochori; at this point you will deviate from the main road and take the dirt road and arrive to the beach after 5 kilometers.
