Elia beach is the most popular beach for gay visitors to the Island. It is also one of the largest. The beach has great sand, sun beds and shades available for daily rent. As you look to the sea, the right hand side is gay. Look out for the rainbow flat. Beyond the sun loungers you will find a smaller bay where you will find even more gay sunbathers. It is also a popular nudist spot.
Arrive early if you want to get a good sun lounge with a front view. Food and drink is not cheap, but of good quality. The bar and restaurant is at the other end of the beach, but the waiters are very handsome so you can have food delivered right to your sun lounger. Ordering from the beach staff and a nice tip will secure your seat the next day.
There is also a large open air beach restaurant located by the beach car park. The menu is full of delicious seafood and meat dishes, but its pricey.
Elia Beach is quite in the morning. People tend to arrive by noon and leave from 5pm to 7pm.
