Rodakino is a remote village on the South coast of Crete between Plakias and Frangokastello. It sits on a steep slope above the sea. Some way below the village you can find several nice and generally very quiet beaches. Korakas (the first beach that you reach coming down from Rodakino) and the second beach a little to the West Polirizos are the easiest to get to and therefore you'll see more people there. Tthe third beach Peristeres needs you to drive further towards the West on a narrow winding road and is also more peaceful.
