The sandy beach of Megas Gialos is one of the largest beaches of the island and it is located in the south, only 12 km from Ermoupoli. It is favored by many as it offers easy access, protection from the winds, some tourist facilities and crystal-clear waters. Its privileged location in front of the homonymous settlement enables visitors to walk in the picturesque streets of the area, visit the chapel of St. Anthony and relax while drinking their coffee or enjoying local dishes in nearby taverns. The village also offers many choices for accommodation, car rental options and shops with basic necessities.
