About Platis Gialos
Platis Gialos is a popular resort on the south of the island mainly due to the excellent Blue Flag-awarded beach with sunbeds, umbrellas & watersports. It has a shallow shoreline too so is excellent for families. There is a good choice of places to stay here as well as tavernas and bars. Water taxis leave from here to go to the two most famous beaches on the island - Paradise and Super Paradise.
Where to stay
The luxurious Petasos Beach stands on a private peninsula offering stunning views of the Aegean.
