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.

I just absolutely love how laid back this beach is. I love that it's very relaxing without tons of loud music and it's not pretentious. The restaurants along this beach have some amazing food!! The beach and the water are gorgeous!!

We were at Platis Gialos Beach in June 2014, luckily it wasn't very busy as the sun beds are crammed onto the beach not giving anyone much peace or privacy. We paid Euro10 for the umbrella and Euro5 each for 2 sunbeds even though we were staying at the hotel. We were able to order food and drink from the... More

Platis Gialos Beach can look small at first glance. It has all you want/need, however. There's sand, clean and clear water, lots of padded lounges with shades (patronize the restaurant so you can use the beach lounges for free), clean and well maintained bathrooms, and bar/food service. There's also some beach shops for items you may have forgotten. Some other... More
