Can become crowded in the summer and is very expensive but doesn't have to be Bonatsa is an amazing restaurant and very competitive. To be honest we never had a bad meal in any of the restaurants but they can competitively try and lure you in

Whatever is your preference, Platys beach offers it all. Spacious and sandy, you can elect to sit at the water on a sunbed (yes it costs), on the sand itself or spend time in the crystal clear Aegean without the crowds. A variety of water sports activities are available for those who are more adventurous and there are any number... More

The restaurant was in a great spot overlooking the beach. However we found the food to be average. We had dinner with my parents and my 2 boys. My father ordered a simple souvlaki dish and found the meat to be tough. We found the other meals lacked flavor. Disappointing night because it wasn't cheap.

Way too busy for us with beach umbrellas very close to each other just did not appeal to us. It was noisy and as we had our own large terrace overlooking the sea we preferred to spend out time there

This is our 4th time to Platis Yialos and of all the beaches...this is the one to choose. It is spacious and perfect for all ages. There are a wide variety of beach activities, bars and restaurants.

A gentle curve of coral sand, sandwiched between Aegean Sea and restaurants, where the nations of the world exist as one. The most cosmopolitan resort we've visited on our many trips to Greece; this destination as others on Mykonos seems to attract people from all over the world to sample it's delights. The bay is calm with a gentle breeze,... More

Loved Platis Gialo Beach! Clean, beautiful sandy beach. Not too busy, not too empty. Gorgeous mega yachts anchored off shore. Older kids can entertain themselves, and order lunch straight to your umbrella and lounge chairs, while grown-up's enjoy a nice lunch on the patio of a beach establishment. (yes the lounge chairs are for rent, but its worth it!) Probably... More

The beach was fine and the restaurants were very nice. I personally prefer less crowded beaches, but for this type of beach it was OK.

This is a good beach to spend a day at. There are plenty of Greek Tavernas to choose from for lunch or supper. The water in the bay is crystal clear. The beach gets pretty packed with mostly tourists.
