Platys Gialos

(2.8/5 based on 2,200+ reviews for 4 attractions)
Things to do: beaches
Playtis Gialos, a popular resort on Mykonos, serves as a convenient starting point for regular sightseeing tours of the island's southern coastline. Hugely crowded at the height of the tourist season, the town's well-developed main beach features golden sands lapped by the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea. Many visitors to the area end up spending their entire holiday in Platys Gialos, but you can also use the town as a base camp and split your time between other popular beaches scattered along this part of the coastline. For something a little different, hop on a public bus and visit nearby Mykonos Town, world-famous for its Cycladic architecture and vibrant street atmosphere.

Where to stay

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.
