We traveled to this picturesque beach by public transport mid morning and proceeded on a leisurely 5 minute stroll to the right of the main beach area as you are facing the water and hired up a spot serviced by very attentive staff on the waters edge. The water was crystal clear, the sand was golden and the expected crowds... More

Now I discovered Elia beach on my very first visit to Mykonos 3 years ago. If you staying in Mykonos Town as we do, it's a bit far, but hey when in Mykonos, grab your quad bike, don't forget your sunscreen and take a leisurely ride to Elia Beach, a great way to sea the island. When you get there,... More

Elia Beach is the perfect alternative the some of the more party-hardy beaches on Mykonos. There are straight and gay, singles and couples, older and younger. There are several sections, each charge for chair and/or umbrella use. There is also a restuarant to get food and drinks. A nice perk is you can have items delivered if you don't want... More

The beach is great. However the crowd is more mature and affluent. the beach is also family oriented. Great destinations for family and friends in need of a relaxing escape. Water is warm, feels fantastic and pretty smooth.

We had the day to spend in Mykonos as a port of call on our cruise. We took the bus to Elias beach and spent the morning relaxing and swimming on the beach. It is clothing optional, however we did not see anyone topless. There were plenty of cushions loungers and thatch umbrellas (for a fee). The water was crystal... More

We have been to Mykonos plenty of times, and Elia beach is one of the best spots to visit, for all day swimming, beach life and sunset drink and food! Bring your camera for amazing shots!!

Elia beach is by far one of the best beaches on Mykonos, it is quiet and peaceful. I recommend purchasing a sun chair right by the seaside and fall asleep with the waves gentle crashing on the shore. There is also easy access to the Elia Restaurant that serves a variety of food. Views are scenic at Elia and I... More

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
