Just 2.5 kilometers west from Plakias, Souda Beach is set in a wide cove with a steep rock wall at one end. The beach is quite protected from the wind and has a mix of gravel and sand. Two restaurants are located at the western end, and you can use their sun beds and umbrellas for free with a purchase.
This is a very quiet and low-key beach, perfect for truly unwinding. The water here is clear and generally calm, and the rocky shoreline at the end is a local hot spot for scuba diving and snorkeling.
If you are staying in Plakias, Souda beach is a beautiful walk along the coastal road. About halfway along at a sharp corner, stairs lead down to a secret pebble beach called Fotinari beach. This tiny cove has no services but is a great spot for a morning swim, and snorkeling here is excellent.
