Arriving here, the visitor comes across a fascinating bay, well protected, separated to three smaller sandy beaches by little capes, low hills and rocks, which form the successive beaches of Psarou, Platys Gialos and Aghia Anna and discern them from the more remote beach of Paraga at the Cafe Cape.
At the hill on the left of public road, at Portes, ruins of an ancient castle witness for the long history of the place. The beach has good access from Chora, with buses running every half an hour; caiques and boats bring visitors to all the southern beaches of the island: Paraga, Paradise and Super Paradise, Agrari and Elia.
Villa Nireas lies only 4km from the capital of Mykonos and just 300m from Platy Gialos beach, one of the most beautiful beaches with crystal clear blue water, picturesque local taverns and water sport facilities. Daily boats from Platy Gialos set sail to the most famous and appreciated beaches of the island such as Paraga, Paradise, Super Paradise, Agrari and Elia.
Not only nature, but people have taken care so that the settlement contributes to the harmony of the landscape. Despite the intense touristic development, the settlement has preserved some of the features of the old agricultural character it used to have: cultivation extended on terraces climb the slopes of the hills, the characteristic reed beds at the small gorges, the gardens and trees discarded here and there make an idyllic environment and give the promise of relaxation and calm.
Being one of the oldest and more developed beaches, Platys Gialos is well organized, offering good accommodation, several choices for food and amusement, sea sports and car and motorbike rental; it is suitable both for families and young tourists and very popular to all categories of visitors.
