The village is home to a lot of people of Turkish decent who know the village as Kermentes, due to Turkish people being largely Muslim there’s also a large Mosque but it’s not open to the public so not somewhere you can go inside or look around.
The Turkish population here also means you’ll find the best Turkish restaurants in and around Platani making it a unique place on the island to visit, particularly for a nice lunch or an evening meal. The village is home to a good number of restaurants and a couple of supermarkets but there isn’t much accommodation available but as it’s so close to Kos Town that wont matter.
Platani is an inland village so there’s no beaches nearby, you can however get to a few beaches quite easily. Take a look at Kos Town beach, Lambi beach and Psalidi beach as they’re all within reasonable distance.
