Although a bit out of town- 30 mins bus ride. To me it is the best beach- a bit stoney but very clear water. Crowded from late June- early Sept.

Elia beach- calm, clear waters. White sand. Good service. Much better than Paradise beach. Spent a whole day here easily.

We really enjoyed our visit to this beach! The beach beds are a little pricy and the drinks unfortunately very expensive but we got beds right on the water and the drinks were large and yummy! Service was very friendly. One of our fav beaches in Mykonos.
