Holidays in

A Greek party paradise

Mykonos is known all over the world for its gorgeous, fun-packed beaches and party-paradise vibe. And Elia is not only the biggest beach on the island’s south coast, but it’s also a firm favourite with holidaymakers of all ages. The idyllic sweep of golden sand is situated between the turquoise Mediterranean and the island’s dramatic rocky cliffs. There are plenty of tavernas, bars and convenience stores located just a short stroll away, but there’s also attentive service on hand to deliver snacks and drinks directly to your sunbed if you’re feeling really chilled out.

Elia holidays are for people looking to take it easy in the daytime. When the sun has set, if you fancy hitting the dance floor, you’ll find a livelier scene just a short taxi ride away. So whether you’re a solo traveller, a couple, a group of friends or a family, if you’re looking to lounge away the days on a beautiful beach, holidays to Elia are the gold standard.

Your Elia questions, answered

Discreet sections at the very far end of Elia Beach are favoured by some clothes-optional travellers, but if you keep to the middle, it’s very family-friendly.

Temperatures hover around the low 20s in spring and autumn, and rise to the 30s in July and August. Its Cyclades location means there’s usually a refreshing breeze.

You can rent them – and if you order food or drinks from the sunlounger attendants, you’ll get preferential treatment, perhaps even a front-row spot, the next day.

Best things to do in Elia

Hit the water

The warm, calm sea in and around Elia is perfectly suited to the wide range of activities on offer – jet-skiing, banana-boat rides, parasailing and more.

Take in the views

Mykonos is a great place for people-watching – bag an outdoor spot at one of the tavernas and watch the bright young things come and go.

Enjoy the nightlife

Elia’s bars play great music until late, but if you feel like taking things up a notch, the beaches to the west have more of a clubby feel.
