Elia Beach is one of the largest on Mykonos and in recent years, has become the most popular with gay sunbathers.
This sandy beach is well-managed with plenty of good quality sunbeds and shades to rent. The right-hand end (assuming you are looking at the sea) is gay & nudist.
If you rent a sun bed & shade, then you can expect an ‘at seat’ drinks and snacks service. This is particularly convenient as the bar is at the other end of the beach, but not cheap, so it’s still a good idea to bring your own drink, cigarettes, etc. Having said that, our beach attendant was a bronzed, smooth-talking Greek hunk who had us ordering from his menu every hour or so.
The large open-air beach restaurant, located close to the beach car park, offers an extensive menu of seafood and meat dishes. Good food, but expensive.
Elia beach’s gay section is generally quiet in the morning with people arriving around lunch time and leaving around 5 to
Hire a car and drive. There is a car park at the beach. We think this is the best option if you are in a group and plan to visit Elia most days.
Take a bus from the Northern Bus Station (close to the old port ferry quay), buses depart at regular intervals from 11:00 – check at the station for the current schedule.
Alternatively, take a bus from the main Southern Bus Station to Plato Yailos and then catch the regular boat service to Elia.Last updated: 02-25-2014
