Surprisingly, I enjoyed this beach more than Paradise Beach. The beach and surroundings were nice and tranquil. We stayed at the Myconian Ambassador, so use of the Yialo-Yialo beach chairs were complimentary. As we visited in October, crowds were not an issue, but the constant approach of people trying to sell designer knock-offs was a little off putting...especially when you... More

Traveled to Greece on a Gate 1 Tour. Trip was fabulous, everything I had hoped for as far as the beauty and the beaches there. We stayed at the Karmari Hotel, very close to Platis Gialos Beach. The beach was great, but the beach chairs that are offered for 5 euros could certainly be a little cleaner than they were.... More

We went in September on a week day, so there were no crowds. We got there around 11 am and got the perfect beach chair right in front of the ocean. No fees to get on the beach, no trash, very clean. Water was crystal clear, blue and beautiful. Plenty of places along the beach to get drinks and eat.... More

Visited first week of October and were very pleased with the low crowds. More room than expected on beach, the chairs take up the whole area but enough distance between sets to be comfortable. Water gorgeous, immaculate. Excellent restaurant Yialo Yialo with beach service! Ideal for peaceful day at beach.

If you're looking for a good beach in Mykonos, try Platis Gialos Beach. I stayed in an apartment in the Old Port area and walked 5 mins. to the bus station and caught the bus to and from the beach. +- 15 mins. away, every day. The bus stops very close to the beach and there are some steep steps... More

PS this is reviewing Platis Gialos beach south of Lassi on Kefalonia, as opposed to any other Platis Gialos. It's a beautiful little bay, with wide sandy beach, wooded cliff behind, rocks at the side, loos and showers. Felt like more of a locals' beach than Makris Gialos as it's smaller and entrance a bit less obvious. We loved the... More

The wife and I stayed over by Mykonos City and had rented a scooter. From our hotel we re only about an 8 mins scooter ride over there. Riding a scooter we found easy parking right next to the beach. It was the off-season for tourist so our beach chairs and umbrellas were free. We sat in the beach chairs... More

Love this beach - beautifully clear waters - gorgeous golden sand - really good for snorkelling - food & drink is a bit pricey on the beach and avoid the far end of the beach beds are 30 euros!
