PHOTOS: The World’s 10 Best Gay Beaches 2014


Elia Beach, Mykonos

Greece’s enchanting island of Mykonos has been luring gays for decades, and when they’re not strolling the quaint alleyways of Mykonos Town, they’re often on the other side of the island at Elia Beach. As one of the island’s largest beaches, Elia boasts fine sand and shallow, clear waters, plus an unbeatable view of the next island over. The gay (and partly nude) section is on the right, where any type of romance is possible. Super Paradise, the island’s former gay beach of choice, is another popular choice but has definitely straightened up in the past few years.
