Souda beach west of Plakias.
I think that Souda beach is better than the beach in Plakias. The beach has a beautiful location and is partly sheltered from high waves by rocks. Tavernas are located at the far end of the beach.

From Souda beach you can swim in the Libyan Sea all the way to Egypt. :-)
Parts of Souda beach are popular among nudists.
Like Shinaria, Amoudi, Amoudaki and Damnoni beaches east of Plakias, Souda is popular with nudists. If you are disturbed by nudists, don't worry, there is plenty of space, it is a long and very wide beach.
