What I will see and do around Plati village:
• Among the oldest settlements on the island
• For swimming and a day at the beach; Plati, Thanos, Evgati and the peaceful scene at Stivi
• Chapel Panagias Kakaviotissas at Thanos
Plati is a pretty, little village among the oldest on Limnos, and is just a few km away from Myrina. The population swells during the summer as it is a popular tourist destination, and has plenty of amenities, facilities and other services to accommodate the high seasonal demand. Stroll through the paved, central square and enjoy a coffee while taking in the view of the magnificent village church.
For a refreshing swim, try: Plati Beach as it has crystal-clear, blue waters; Evgati Beach has a one-km long shoreline; Thanos Beach is the most popular with its aqua-green waters and hidden in a rock is the captivating chapel Panagia Kakaviotissas, and Stivi is the most secluded and peaceful one, and can be found near the church Ag. Paraskevi on Cape Tigani.
