Walk the length of the beach and swim the length back first thing in the morning to beat the crowds. A great way to start the day. The 'Bonatsa' end of the beach is a lovely quiet spot with perfect swimming beach.

Organized beach that has several restaurants to choose from along the beach. Clear blue water and white sand. Was crowded in August but getting a beach chair was easy still.

We tried this beach on the last two days on Mykonos and what a discovery! Less noisy than the nearby Paraga and Paradise, more pleasant for swimming than Agia Anna, and with good food served on the sunbed. Highly recommendable.

This beach is my favorite beach of them all. Very relaxing. There is a bit of music always In the background which is nice. But it is all about the sand

We found it a bit overwhelming to see the amount of umbrellas on the beach. Beautiful water though. We found one that hires out 2 sun beds and 1 umbrella for 15euro. But will head to ornos beach tomorrow as I heard the beds are free as long as you eat at the restaurants there.

Lovely white sand and safe swimming where you can swim in shallow water. Lovely restaurants with staff that look after you. They provide nice shaded sitting areas for €15 a day. Take your suncream!

Great beach! Lots of umbrellas but it will cost you. Some of the restaurants dont charge you if you eat at their restaurant. People selling fake items so be careful as they did pick up a backpack from one of the tourist!

We stayed a few days in Platis Gialos on the end of August 2015 and it's been a delight. The beach is beautiful, very clean. The sand is less rocky than some other beaches nearby (coming from Brazil, I'm not used to rocky beaches), so it's more comfortable to walk and swim. The it has a lot real restaurant by... More
