Pladasa was a town of ancient Caria. Its name does not appear in ancient authors, but is inferred from epigraphic evidence. It was a polis (city-state) and a member of the Delian League.[1] There was a strong Carian presence in the town's ethnic makeup.[1]

Its site is located near Çandüşüren, Asiatic Turkey.[2][3]
