It is a very nice beach, the water is crystal clear and cool. You can go snorkeling at the rocky end of the bay and see lots of colorful fish.

The best way to get to Super Paradise beach is by car. The sand here is a little coarser and stony, the water is fairly cool, great for swimming and relaxing. And if you’re up for a party, this is the ideal beach. The party starts at 4:00 p.m. with great music from well-known DJs. However, please expect that they also play loud music throughout the day. Younger or party-people would love it here!

Whether the crystal-clear water, the beautiful beach, or the food for every price category in the restaurant, a visit at Elia Beach is worthwhile! The majority of the beach is being used as a “private beach” by hotels. But you can also find a publicly managed beach, and if you walk a few meters to the end of the bay, you will find a very quiet section.
