The beach and ocean are beautiful, but we were constantly approached by men selling sarongs and women offering foot massages.

A very strange and disconcerting choice by our tour company. Mykonos town, Monastery of Panayia Tourliani, and Elia beach. I didn't travel 7,100 km for a one half hour stop at a beach in October. It was a nice day so we ordered a smoothie...More

We took the boat taxi from ornos beach to here. No one explained that if we were going to one specific beach that we could pay €10. Instead we were charged €20 to “beach hop.” The beaches on the way were supposedly “wild” and party...More
