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.

Great beach, sandy, a few stone on the way into sandy sea but lovely. Naked sun bathing great. Restaurant was nice for breakfast and free parking all round.

We went on the gay side wich is further on north. Good chairs and umbrellas. Good looking crowd. Much naked bodies. Friendly and cute staff though not gay! Snacks are not that good.

What a great beach! A little hard to get to from Mykonos Town in terms of distance - although regular buses leave from Remezzo and taxis will take you as well. Less touristy, more locals. Beautiful beach and water. Fun little restaurant (although didn't try it so can't comment). Chairs and umbrellas available to rent.

Elia Beach was the most postcard perfect beach I visited while in Mykonos. The beach had plenty of sunbeds, and was pretty quiet the day I was there. The water is amazing and beautiful, clear. Lovely with the cliffs on both sides. The food is great too. The baked feta was awesome. Also had the cleanest restrooms of any beach... More
