Create an itinerary including Platis Gialos Beach
One of Mykonos' more tranquil spots, sits in a crescent-shaped bay just a short drive from the island's main city. The wider waterfront area offers a range of restaurants, bars, and shops, while the beach itself features several snack bars and small cafes. You can swim or snorkel here all day, or use the beach as your base to take long boat tours up and down the coastline. The beach features a watersports club, where you can rent banana boats and snorkeling equipment, or arrange for waterskiing and wakeboarding lessons. To explore other popular beaches along the island's southern coastline, use the taxi-boat service departing from a nearby jetty.

  • Platis Gialos beach is great, plenty of loungers with mod cons and restaurant service, but can be costly as you have to pay for sun beds. Beds are owned by the restaurant / hotel so worth negotiating....  more

  • The beach is good. Water clearness 10/10, the shore is in big sand which makes the water even more clear. The only “-“ is that the space for ppl who don’t want to pay for 2 benches and an umbrella 100+ EUR or 2x 1L cocktail for 40€ - is ridiculously small - 10x10m(it’s at the end of the bay). But the experience of such clear saeside levels this.
  • Extremely calm and beautiful beach with deep blue waters having the abundance of boats and yachts, lined up with beautiful white and blue hotels and homes on the shore lines up the hills. I really enjoyed the setting sun and cool breeze here. Gravelly sand on the up and smoother silkier sand near the water.
