“Relaxing beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The local bus stop is a few hundred meters from the beach. Go early to get a spot on one of the restaurant's beach chairs. There's a lot of restaurants to choose from to have lunch and also a few shops to buy coldrinks etc.

“a perfect summer day by the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

was on Princess Cruise line that stopped at Mykonos port. took the shuttle into Mykonos town and got on the bus straight to Platis Gialos beach. glad we went early as it got really packed later on, not to mention it was boiling hot by noon too. I can't compare it with any other beaches on this island as this was the only one I went to but for what it was, I enjoyed it a lot! the water was so clear when we swam in it, you can see little fish a little longer than the size of your finger and tiny squid swimming in it too! all the beach chairs were rented out from the restaurants along the beach. one umbrella with two chairs are 10 euros, you can buy drinks on top of that or not. there wasn't a time limit either.

“First Stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Closest beach on the water taxi from Ornos. Nice but not the nicest - bit commercialised compared to the others.
