Create an itinerary including Elia Beach
Stretch out on the soft sand of Elia Beach--the longest one in Mykonos. No matter how many people flock here, residents say it rarely feels crowded. Take a dip in the Aegean Sea, or visit the watersports center to rent a personal watercraft or go tubing. Two restaurants cater to the beach crowd--even serving food directly to your lounge chair. Be aware that the beach includes a designated area for nude sunbathing. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Elia holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Elia Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Too Many Nudists for my liking !! Bit pebbly down a very steep hill. You will need a shuttle bus or car to get too. Better beaches in the area

  • A nice beach which unfortunately is dominated by vastly over priced sunbeds! A pair of sunbeds will set you back 50 Euros PLUS a minimum spend of 20 Euros per person on food and drink. I don't know....  more

  • Beautiful beach- very quiet and not many people when we went. Easily reachable by bus for €2.30 each way from Old Port. There are a few places where you can bring your own umbrella to avoid paying for expensive sun beds. (We bought our sun umbrella for €15 in Mykonos Town) There’s a large restaurant on the beach with nice bathrooms.
  • Would I say this is my favorite beach in Mykonos? Not necessarily... But I'll take it over any of the other ones closer to Athens or Paradise for example. Why I don't like it is because the sun beds take up most of the real estate for one (not sure about prices, didnt care to inquire). Also, I found the beach to be rocky compared to other ones we've visited where there's more finer sand. We took the Municipal Bus in (Under 3€ pp from Old Port), it looked like there was still free parking which is good 👍
