Elia Mykonos: Elia is a big sandy beach, located 12 kilometers from the capital. Elia is the longest sandy beach of Mykonos, fully organized, offering a wide choice of taverns and bars as well as water sports facilities such as water-skiing, parasailing, and windsurfing.
Elia is the last stop on the caique (traditional fishing boat used as taxi boat) so the beach can be less crowded than others. Lots of nudists come here. It is a quiet beach unlike Paradise, Super Paradise and others. There is a nice view to the left up the hill, enjoy the traditional Cycladic houses.
