BUSY - Head to the end of the Beach

It's really busy at the entrance of the beach - sun loungers packed in really tightly and it's not very appealing! If you carry on walking to the end of the beach though in front... read more

It's really busy at the entrance of the beach - sun loungers packed in really tightly and it's not very appealing! If you carry on walking to the end of the beach though in front of the sushi restaurant it's much nicer and a lot more space! Be careful of the tide...it comes in quickly and we saw some people...

After island hopping between Santorini and Mykonos in early September, we stumbled upon this lively gem. There are amazing sights, beautiful men and women everywhere (especially over in the gay friends area). the water was amazingly beautiful (but cold) and blue.We rented scooters for a few days while staying in Mykonos and the drive from where we stayed (Karmari Hotel)...

because it's one of the best beach ever, and the sea is fantastic! Nice bars on the each, friendly people, always sunny, relaxing, good for tanning and for meeting people.

I would recommend heading to Platis Gialos for the wide variety of restaurants and food! The restaurants right by the waterfront are exceptionally good with reasonable prices for its fish and seafood starters.

Great place to relax for a while and also be in the thick of the fun. Great restaurants, with Free WIFI! They'll bring food right to your lounge chair, and it's good! This was right next to our hotel so we frequented this beach. I wouldn't travel from other parts of the island to come here, but it's a good... More

Stunning coves within a beautiful safe for supervised children blue sea, water temperature swimmingly warm even in Middle of October. Easily accessible restaurants adjacent to white sandy beach. Frequent bus service to and from Mykonos stops near the beach area cost 2/3 euros for two people. Highly recommended visit.

Plenty of places to sit and just wind away an hour or two sipping a coffee in comfort watching life pass by. Ecellent The only thing that spoilt it for me was the sunbeds - they were so close together on the beach you had to be friends with your neighbour but as we went in October - no such... More

Platys Gialos Beach was a very nice beach but small in comparison. There was nowhere to sit without renting beach chairs and umbrellas but that didn't bother us so much because the rental price for 2 lounge chairs and the umbrellas was 12 euro which was very reasonable. The water was crystal clear, pretty warm (around 80-81 degrees) and turquoise... More
