Platis Gialos ( Sifnos ) is a busy tourist resort with a long sandy beach and many facilities. In the destination there are fish taverns and watersports. The golden beach that streches for thousand meters is covered with numerous sunbeds and umbrellas, bars and other facilities. It is surrounded by a long tuft of trees that provide enough shade and its crystalline waters are a real pleasure. The village is ideal for families for both children and adults. You will find bars and restaurants for a cold drink and nice local food.
At the top of the hill stands the church of "Panagia tou Vounou" offering breathtaking panoramic views to the blue sea while on the southern side is the Aspros Pyrgos (White Tower), one of the best-preserved ancient towers of Sifnos.
