Platis Gialos beach is absolutely gorgeous. It was not too busy, there are many restaurants to choose from, the beach is clean and there are a load of available water activities (sea dos, wake boarding, tubing, etc).

Far enough out of Mykonos town to enjoy a peaceful but up market resort. 7 day /10 day ideal stay ... Bus to town 1.6 Euro ... taxi 10 Euro

The stock standard sea of sunbeds....being an Aussie, used to throwing a towel down on our golden sands, it comes as a surprise that Europeans all seem to need a sunbed? But if that's your 'thing' Plati Yalos is your kind of place! Restaurants stretch the entire length of the beach, so you'll not starve.Easy access by 1.60€ bus from... More

Beautiful clean and sandy beach on Mykonos, away from the mostly busy downtown area. Typical azure water and warm(ish) water

Liked the atmosphere, the busy restaurants - some holding Greek entertainment nights. Pleasant walk watching the water sports and our 2.6 year old looking for lizards! We didn't like that it was extremely busy even in May - loads and loads of sun loungers covering the beach - good if all you want to do is sun worship.

We stayed in May (not so busy here this time of year) at the Petasos Beach Hotel near Platys Gialos. We spent a lot of time walking this beach, hiking the trail to the rock beyond the beach, kayaking and enjoying the views from our balcony. Loved it here!
