Beach with coarse (chondri) sand, hence the name! Roughly 10 km from Lafkos and the bight that many fishermen live. It is said that this is the bight where the remaining boats of Xerxes’ fleet resorted after they defeated Greeks at cape Artemisio of North Evia in 480 B.
At a distance of 60 km from the city of Volos, at the southernmost edge of the peninsula of Pelion, Platanias offers moments of enjoyment far from stress and the noise of the city. Apart from swimming in very beautiful natural environment, the beach offers a lot of comforts to visitors.
