This beach was OK. A long way from everything with an average restaurant. There are better places to go on Mykonos

Windy sea,not ideal for bathing. No showers and normal toilets at the seaside of the hotel area. I have seen much better beaches on other Greek islands.

My friends and went here after renting a car, it was really beautiful beach! The water was beautiful and it was so serene and peaceful. The chair rental was a fair price, there were other ones which were more pricey but the ones that we chose were 7 euros, not bad at all. The service was very friendly. The food... More

My husband and I took the water taxi from platys gialos, which was a nice boat ride (maybe an hour with all the beach stops) and gave you a good view of all the southern beaches. We ended up sitting outside of Elia restaurant as they only charged 20 euros for the beach chairs and umbrella with no food minimum.... More

Love this beach, the cocktails are good also! The water is very cold but very very clear worth to swim in it! Hire a sun bed for the day and enjoy the amazing blue sky and crystal clear water!

Lovely, clean, peaceful. One end is better than the whole. Sunbeds, umbrellas, beach restaurants available. You could have snacks and drinks while sunbathing. No place to take a shower or even wash your feet from sand though. You can use the toilets of the restaurants on beach.

The beach is really great. We were told it was a quiet one and it was. Contrary to what we were told, many families too. The chairs: 20 EUR. If you want first or second row, you must buy for 40 EUR at the bar. Though they bring it to your chair, the menu is expensive. Bathrooms were IMPECCABLE!

We loved the fact after a few steps into the crystal clear water it was deep enough for swimming. The beach was quite busy but there were plenty of sun beds. Waiter from the beds was great and prices were very fair. We had a very nice lunch at one of the beachside restaurants, again fairly priced. Little bit of... More
