Platis Gialos Beach, Platys Gialos

3.8
#2 of 43 in Outdoors in Mykonos
One of Mykonos' more tranquil spots, sits in a crescent-shaped bay just a short drive from the island's main city. 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.

    This beach is quite leased by bars and restaurants. Full of sun loungers to 10 €/por person. Or if you rent one or does not extend the towel. The sunsets are very good. It is close to the city and get there quickly by bus for about €2. The Bay is small but has your charm but is not a beach.

    Well, we laugh always negative reviews about Mykonos who complain of the noise, the little tourist sites and prices. This island is just desert rock where the only interest is to the party. There are 2000 Islands in the Cyclades and it is dedicated to it. I am always surprised to see people who come and Marvel :) If you have landed at Mykonos by something other than chance, Platis Yialos is a "typical" beach: very "you saw me" with people who spend the rest of the year indoors of bodybuilding, tattooed, directed jet-setters, etc. Prices are higher than elsewhere in the Cyclades, that's for sure. After, the beach is beautiful, the water is clean, it's 10 minutes by scooter to Mykonos Town and Paradise Beach. In short the perfect place to spend the day (when you are up you at 14:00) before making the clubs. After it's the transat (to be taken per pair), between € 10 and € €20 5 beer and € 10 to 15 pizza. Restaurants around, count €20/30 to eat.

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.
