A short distance from Litochoro, the area of Plaka has one of the most beautiful beaches of the Olympic Riviera. Combining rocks, pebbles and blond sand, the wide strip that is bathed by the transparent waters of the Aegean is a popular destination for swimming and long stays, as it is surrounded by many hotel units, organized campsites, and all kinds of accommodation options. As a developed tourist resort, the area has many dining options, with fish taverns, Mediterranean restaurants, cafes, bars, and beach bars hosting all-day and all-night parties. The beach is organized in several places, while the "free" part is comfortable, with many meters wide for sunbathing, games, and swimming. It is awarded with a Blue Flag for its quality and is easily accessible from the highway, at a distance of about 20 km from Katerini.
