On the south side of Mykonos, not far from the cosmopolitan capital, one can find the picturesque, Instagram-perfect, coastal village of Platis Gialos. Home to the longest beach on the island, with fine sand, crystal clear waters, and lots of facilities to please water lovers, Platis Gialos is a dream location for those that fancy the idea of sipping their cocktail with just the sound of the waves as their company (also ideal for fine dining experiences).
What makes Platis Gialos so Unique?
Although Platis Gialos it is a rather quiet and peaceful retreat, offering plenty of opportunities for a relaxed holiday, it provides an enjoyable escapade for almost every taste. For starters, it is a step away from famous beaches like Super Paradise and Paradise whose crazy parties’ reputation has reached the corners of the earth. On top of that, history enthusiasts will love the fact that a bit northern of Platis Gialos lie the well-preserved towers of the Roman and Hellenistic times. That aside, the quaint village is also a popular hub that connects visitors with almost all the beaches on the island (via water taxis and boats). As for photography aficionados, let’s just say that the region is one of the most photographed areas in Mykonos for a reason! What you get from staying here is, well, sheer pleasure – however you may define it.
