Arriving by cruise ship, we decided to take a tour to Elia Beach. My husband and I were glad we did! The water was so amazingly crystal clear you could see the bottom for quite a way out! There were comfy lounge chairs and lovely straw umbrellas (for a small fee) which made for a very relaxing day! The staff... More

I love mykonos is definitely my favourite island in Greece. This place is absolutely a paradise on July. Not overcrowded but not desolated beautiful sea and very well organised. Far from the chaotic centre. A must go place

Great setting. We ordered food while at the beach from the restaurant that offers food there and had really good dishes. Water was warm, people-watching was entertaining. Lots of water activities nearby, too.

Elia beach came highly recommend by the owner of our hotel, so for me that set the bar at a high level. The road to the beach is fantastic it's very windy with suddend drops to either side at times. Once at the beach, you are confronted with golden sands, clear water and the picturesque landscape which makes this place... More

My husband and I spent a day at Elia Beach and it did not disappoint. There are plenty of loungers / umbrellas and the sand was soft and water clear. This was by far the best beach we visited during our vacation to Greece. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great quiet day lounging at the beach.

Mykonos beaches are all amazing... It's not about one beach being better than the other, the water is so clear that you can literally see the fish swimming around you.... What's so perfect about Elia beach is the road to get there... If you're staying in Mykonos town then Elia is on the other side of the island... The 20... More

Elia (eea) Beach in Mykonos is a very nice beach overall. The sand on the upper beach area is fine and soft but its a bit more loose pea gravel as you get closer to the water and into it. A pair of beach shoes would be a plus. The beach is on a protected cove, surrounded by high hills,... More

The water was so clear and just enough of a wave to keep it interesting. Sandy beach with comfortable sunbeds and sun protection.

You may think that I am going to write about a regular beach but Elia is not a normal one. Elia is more than that. It is piece of paradise where you can relax, eat good food, see beautiful people and swim in a calm and amazing sea.

Lovely water and beach. Very relaxing day (a bit expensive though). We stayed on the family part of the beach (the right site is mostly designated for gay people). Overall, very good compared to other beaches visited in Mykonos.
