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.
