Our private spot at the beach

Stepping onto the Royal’s private beach for a morning swim is a uniquely peaceful start to the day, when the water is as still as a mirror and the pale sky has yet to deepen to its intense hue. Awarded the Blue Flag as the longest strip of golden sand and crystal clear waters on the island, Elia Bay has always drawn a discerning and dynamic crowd. Relax in luxurious comfort thanks to the Royal’s sunbed and parasol concession serviced by our beach waiters, or enjoy the watersports offering, local tavernas and beach bars. Elia’s many activities strike just the right note to preserve its charm as a haven of beauty and tranquility, a few miles from the glamorous buzz of town, or the beaches of Psarou and Super Paradise.

The pool deck

Wander over to the Royal’s piece of the heaven after a leisurely breakfast and choose your pool position for the day, with sweeping views to the horizon. The broad deck with three large saltwater pools is flanked by a restaurant and bar, and has a relaxing yet vibrant energy that will entice you to bask in the sun and laze in the shade of large reed parasols all afternoon, as our courteous staff caters to your every need. Order one of Meltemi‘s Mediterranean delicacies, salads or snacks, to be served alongside your lounger. Or drift over to Lagoon, the swim-up bar, for smoothies or cocktails.
