Beautiful beach with clear water and umbrellas and chairs if your resort provides them. Otherwise prepare to pay for them. Laying on the beach with your own towel is an option, although, the location is not ideal. Prepare to be self contained on the beach (food, water, sun screen, book, towel, etc.), otherwise plan to pay a hefty price for... More

A very beautiful beach, there are 2 ends and both are busy. As you facing the beach, left hand is where all the shops are, right hand is just covered with exotic umbrellas and day bed. One way to be savvy as I find is bought your own food from the main town/ along the way before you get to... More

There are probably better beaches, this is nice with amazingly clear water, but it is expensive to rent chairs (which are a must in the summer) and it is a little removed from the nearby towns. It provides a nice scenic drive and island is quite beautiful. Word of warning to those with families, although marked as a family friendly... More

We were staying on Paradise Beach and our hotel owner recommended we go to Elia Beach so we took some ATVs there and I'm glad we did. Nice ocean-front bar / restaurant. Very classy, older vibe. And the beach itself was beautiful. The water was that perfect blue you see in postcards. We got to sit with some wine and... More

Came here in the shoulder season and the beach beds were still ridiculously expensive (I think 25 or 30 euros) even though we had a lunch at the restaurant. The sand is quite clean and so is the water. Liked it but just felt like it was a bit of a rip of in comparison to other places.

Came here based on great TA reviews. Other better beaches in my opinion! We rode from Platis Gialos on our quad, and we very much enjoyed the ride and checking out different beaches this day (stayed at Platis Gialos, then rode to Elia, Super Paradise, and Ornos. This was my least favorite beach of all of them). Perhaps it was... More

This beach is beautiful. Heavenly sunset. Easily accessible from Mykonos town. There is a bus. It gets crowded after 11am. Nice restaurant called Elia beach.

The Myconian Villas part of the beach has nice lounge chairs. The beach itself is pretty with a very active beach seen. It was to reach by walking or shuttle. It was nice but preferred the pool at the hotel.

We visited at the beginning of October so it was relatively quiet. Very pretty beach with a lovely restaurant on the beach. Two sunbeds with an umbrella and table was 25 euros (but Mykonos is generally expensive anyway) and we thought it was worth it for the comfort - very high standard and waiter service at your sunbed.
