We day tripped to Elia Beach during our September 2013 Mediterranean cruise. The beach is terrific...quiet, well-tended w/a great view of the sea. The best part was the Taverna at the beach. Sounds a bit odd, but before we even sat down we checked out the rest rooms and were impressed at their cleanliness and contemporary look. If you go... More

this is the best beach to visit in Mykonos. the water is beautiful and crystal clear. hiring a banana lounge is a pricey though and the drinks and food are expensive too. gets busy in peak season and a little difficult to get to but well worth the effort.

We went here during the third week of September 2013. I'm not sure if the weather was just due to the time of year, but the water was very choppy and it was difficult to swim in at all. still very beautiful though We sat at the first beach bar, it was rather pricey, Super Paradise beach was cheaper which...
