After reading such great reviews, I was thrilled to go to Elia. My wife and I rented an ATV and drove ourselves to the south-shore beach. The ATV was a great experience. Honestly, I was disappointed in the beach. Don't get me wrong ... the views were nice. My biggest complaint was that the beach was very rocky. I have... More

Terrific views, clear water, clean sand. Great for families -but stay near the bar. Not loud or a party scene. Get there early if you want a chair. Terrific beach service. Clean restrooms.

This beach is about 20 minutes drive from Mykonos town centre, it is also served by a local bus service. We found it enjoyable, although expensive if you order any food or drinks. The chairs are very comfortable and the staff very amiable.

I felt like I was at a chill lounge all day. Great tunes, beautiful waters and I even picked up the cutest white linen dress at the shop! Loved the vibe.

Crystal clear water...! Amazing relaxation with the help of a cool breeze. Loved the comfortable beds to chill.. On the other hand, the service is a bit slow.. although the waiters really do their best, I'd say that they need more people in order to deal with the volume of work...! So I wouldn't mind the high prices if the... More

Loved that you can lay in a comfortable, shaded lounger while being served food and icy cold Mythos on a hot afternoon. The beach here is an easier slope into the water and there are fewer young kids on this section of beach.
