A picturesque drive through olive and fruit trees, leads us to this small traditional `fishing village` - coastal suburb of Promyri - 60 km South East of the city of Volos.
During the summer Platanias is quite cosmopolitan because of the great number of visitors who stay in the village and also because of travellers passing through on their way to the Sporades islands by using `water taxis`.
During the winter, there are many fish boats that supply restaurants and traditional taverns with fresh fish making this port an interesting pole of attraction for those who love delicious tastes.
The colourful boats in the port give the impression of an island landscape, the taverns and ouzo-taverns at the length of the beach and the beautiful cafeterias and bars; make Platanias the ideal choice for your holiday destination.
Platanias is an interesting place for overnight stay, since it offers the experience to walk along nature`s short or long paths and visit the rest of Mount Pelion`s South East crystal clear blue beaches and traditional villages.
