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

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.
