The wider waterfront area offers a range of restaurants, bars, and shops, while the beach itself features several snack bars and small cafes. You can swim or snorkel here all day, or use the beach as your base to take long boat tours up and down the coastline. The beach features a watersports club, where you can rent banana boats and snorkeling equipment, or arrange for waterskiing and wakeboarding lessons. To explore other popular beaches along the island's southern coastline, use the taxi-boat service departing from a nearby jetty.

Where to stay in Platys Gialos

Although you can easily visit Platys Gialos from a comfortable hotel base in nearby Mykonos Town, this busy resort spot offers plenty of rooms suitable for every travel budget. Most visitors to the area head straight for the seaside hotels, but you can also explore the town's air-conditioned villas, which provide more privacy and access to private yards. The surrounding villages offer another affordable alternative, providing small but comfortable rooms in cozy guesthouses run by local families.
