Platis Gialos is a coastal village with many tourist accommodations. Located on the south side of the island, just 4.5 km from Mykonos Town. The beach of Platis Gialos (the longest beach on the island), with the endless golden shore and plenty of facilities attracts lovers of water sports such as water ski or jet ski that are available here. Platis Gialos beach is also great for swimming, sunbathing, boating, fishing, and many more aquatic activities. Visitors will find it nearly impossible to get bored, there is simply so much to do! Photography is also a common activity in Platis Gialos beach and the surrounding Mykonos islands due to the sheer beauty of the sun, the sand, and the sea. Platis Gialos beach is a paradise unlike no other.

It's like magic how nature mixes golden sand, with beautiful crystal blue sea. Sip your coffee and relax. From here you can reach by car or by boat famous beaches, as Paradise and Super Paradise and live an endless beach party. North of the area are preserved towers of the Hellenistic or Roman times and is not far from the Giannari, an underground tank with stairs on each side leading to the bottom. Also, you can see Lito, the remains of three towers of the Hellenistic era.

One step from the beach

Platis Gialos is the point of departure for boats that serve as water taxis and carry the visitors in almost all the beaches of Mykonos. There are many luxury hotels and mini markets only a few steps from the beach. And your room is just one step away from the umbrella and sunbed! Some restaurants playing live music in the evenings and you can enjoy your seafood near the beach. Visitors can also enjoy the hospitality and kindness of the locals. One can enjoy the deliciousness of a spinach pie while conversing with the locals about the joys of living. Good food and kind people is what makes Greece special and the locals are experts at both.

DO: If you wish to dine somewhere quiet, or simply to hear the sound of the waves with chill-out music, this is the place for you!
DON'T: There is no bank or ATM.
