This is a great beach to have fun in the sun. It has excellent chair service for drinks and food. The water is crystal clear. All in all a great place to spend a day or even more at!

I stayed at the Mykonian in Sept. and it was wonderful. This was definitely a luxury hotel and Spa overlooking Elia Beach. Will go back again next year.
