Holidays in
Platis Yalos

A whitewashed family friendly gem

Pretty Platis Yalos is on Mykonos’ south-east coast, a cluster of gleaming white buildings leading down to a turquoise bay. The resort is perfect if you want to be close to the action but not right in the thick of it. It’s a peaceful spot that majors in relaxing breaks, but it’s just a 15-minute drive from the bright lights of Mykonos Town. Platis Yalos Beach is a lovely sandy stretch, topped with thatched parasols and backed by bars and tavernas. Its calm waters make it really popular with families. If you fancy a change of scene, the resort of Ornos is only 10 minutes’ up the road, set in the neighbouring bay. Platis Yalos has a good mix of restaurants and watering holes, where you can tuck in to authentic Greek dishes and sip cocktails as the sun goes down. Head into glamorous Mykonos Town when you’re after something more upbeat – the swish clubs and bars here are in the most beautiful setting, tucked down cobbled streets that are fringed with bougainvillea.

YOUR PLATIS Yalos QUESTIONS, ANSWERED

Platis Yalos has a few souvenir shops, but head for Mykonos Town for designer wares and independent boutiques.

There are countless dishes, but spicy kopanisti cheese, louza – sweet-tasting cured ham – and melopita, a delectable honey pie are among the favourites.

Not in Platis Yalos, but be prepared to spend a lot more on drinks, food and club entry in upscale Mykonos Town.
