Mykonos holidays

The perfect Mykonos beach break

It’s hard to imagine a more idyllic beach holiday destination than Platis Gialos, a dreamy cove on the south coast of Mykonos. Perhaps it’s the fact it faces slightly to the west, and so catches the perfect sunset. Or that many of its upscale hotels and restaurants face directly onto the soft, golden sand. Shielded from the wind by a backdrop of photogenic rocky hills, water sports are also a big draw here on Platis Gialos holidays, with an array of high-octane activities on offer – that is if you can tear yourself away from your sun lounger.

Holidays to Platis Gialos are about long, lazy days having fun in the sunshine. If you do feel like delving into Mykonos proper then the main town is a relatively short bus ride away, but Platis Gialos does have plenty of places to eat, drink and shop for gifts. Welcome to the beach break you’ve always wanted.
