Loved this beach!! It is a 20 min drive from Mykonos city, with a lot of space to park. The restaurant it's very good, modern decor, bit ezpensive, but considering you're on the beach, not such unexpected. It's big enough and the chairs are with enough for you to relax, without having the neighours glued to you! Very clean and... More

I have only been to a handful of beaches, but Elia Beach tops them all. The water is a beautiful turquoise blue, and there are very nice beach chairs complete with umbrellas available for a fee. I went there as part of a cruise line excursion, so my food and beach chair were included in my price. They also have... More

Beautiful beach with good lounge service. The staff were responsive and we always got good loungers when we arrived. Food was great though more expensive than Jackie O beach which has better infrastructure. Def worth a visit

I wish we had places like this at home. It gets very busy during peak summer months but it's great. If you don't mind a bit of nudity around the beach then it's fine. Rent an ATV to get here, it's the easiest way and you get the thrill of riding one!

Only if you pay a lot of money in the hands of beach staff you can have the right treatment! No rules, they change mind everytime and reserve umbrellas for the customer offering the highest tip. Never more in this mafia beach!

Elia Beach is beautiful and very relaxing. There are chairs and umbrellas for rent and the sand is nice and smooth. There are beach bars on the beach which are really fun. Dancers on stage and lots of music. This is a great beach to visit. Rent an ATV. Best way to get around.

Great long beach with really clear water . Not too crowded as perissa or paradise beach, and easy to reach by taxi-boat (6 EUR /person round trip)

If your intention is to do water ski or try any other water sports this is the place to be. We visited this place during July , must say the water was still cold and required to wear a body suit. The beach itself is another popular spot and full of crowds.

We paid a small fortune to have our family go out and learn waterskiing. It was a 20 minute lesson (that includes time in the water). The instructor was impatient and rushed and our kids never made it up. Overall negative experience.
