Plataria is a small town located at the head of a deep bay on the Ionian coast of Greece three miles South of Igoumenitsa and the same distance NE of Mourtos. The harbor consists of a town quay which is largely occupied during the season by charter yachts and a large basin immediately NW, which is formed by a long curving breakwater and a short quay extending SSW from the shore.
There is also an anchorage off a long sandy beach South of the harbor. The harbor offers a useful port of call for yachts transiting the Corfu Channel, but is very busy at weekends during the season, when there is often no space at all for visiting yachts owing to the charter changeovers. Although the bay is open NW, shelter is generally good in the prevailing NW winds, although a swell enters with very strong winds from this direction.
