Plati Yialos holidays are beach getaways with all the winning trimmings, including crystal-clear waters, caramel sands and a fun watersports scene.

Pocket-sized paradise

Sitting on the southern coast of Mykonos – an island in the Cyclades region of the Aegean Sea – this dreamy seaside resort aims to please everyone with its variety show of tricks and treats. Sunloungers line the beach, tavernas serve up tasty Greek cuisine and waterfront bars have loads of soft and alcoholic bevvies on tap.

Sporty hotspot

The town's Blue Flag beach is tucked in to a sheltered cove, making it a prime spot for watersports. There's wake-boarding, fly-boarding and water-skiing action, while the shallows are perfect for kids and paddlers. Kayaks and paddleboards are also available for those who'd prefer some coastal exploration.

Step into the postcard

If pottering around the island's capital takes your fancy, you can reach Mykonos Town in a 10-minute drive. You'll recognise this pretty place in an instant – think gleaming-white houses, old-world windmills and bougainvillea-lined balconies. During a daytrip, you can sample some of the region's famed seafood dishes at a taverna in Little Venice – a lot of them have patios that look out across the Aegean Sea.
