Elia Beach Mykonos has always been a popular spot for those looking for a more relaxed Gay Beach escape. It is one of the busiest beaches, especially during the Xlsior Festival in August.

While Jackie O’s beach still reigns supreme, Elia beach in Mykonos comes in a close second for idyllic views, hot guys and warm seas.

How to get to Elia Beach?

The easiest way to get to the beach is to rent a car/moped; however, the cheapest way is to take the bus and then the boat. There is a bus to Elia and Kalafati from Mykonos town, the bus station near the ferry quay, a couple of euros.
