Petasos Beach Resort is that rare holiday ideal: set next to a sandy beach and within walking distance of a selection of local tavernas and amenities. Getting into Mykonos Town is also a breeze, with a journey time of just ten minutes to reach the busier beaches and bustling town.
Rooms and suites at Petasos Beach Resort are light and airy, thanks to the use of a natural palette with bright pops of blue - typical of the island's design. Each room has its own terrace or balcony, making for the perfect place to relax in privacy, enjoying the beautiful sea views.
Platis Yialos, the closest beach located just 30 metres from the hotel, is blessed with golden sand and lined with a number of relaxed cafes and restaurants. The beach is public and day beds are available to rent. For the more lively bars, including the famous Nammos Restaurant, head to Psarou Beach which is located in the next bay along from Petasos Beach Resort and a ten-minute walk from the hotel.
If you want a break from the beach, the hotel's pool offers beautiful views across the bay and out to sea. Le Club Pool Restaurant is positioned to one side of the pool and serves a delicious lunch menu along with drinks throughout the day. The breakfast spread at the second restaurant, VIP Restaurant, is a sight to behold and the views out over the water make the most important meal of the day a real event. An equally impressive a la carte menu is available in the evening, with the lights of Psarou Bay as a backdrop.
When to visit
With just 30 taxis on the whole island finding one in high season can involve quite a wait! Luckily there is a bus stop right outside Petasos Beach which makes getting into Mykonos Town and exploring the other beaches an absolute breeze.
