A really great beach - nice and relaxing, not far to restaurants, lots of sun beds, good waiter service on the beach from all restaurants. Get rid of the hawkers that want to sell you 20 pairs of sunglasses when you are already wearing some and it would be perfect!

Its a little away from Mykonos town and Paradise islands (party place), but worth a stay because of the view that it provides.

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
