Platys Gialos is considered by many to be the most cosmopolitan beach on the island. It is located on the southeastern edge of Sifnos, and has been awarded the EU’s blue flag for years now. Along the beach there are cafés, international cuisine restaurants and traditional Sifnian tavernas. It features sunbeds across a large part of it while water sports fans can find a great deal of activities.
Here, about halfway along the beach, lies Moschoula Pension at a distance of just 10 metres from the beach. Close by, there is a public parking space as well as a bus stop.
