Elia is a long thin beach with sand and fine pebble south of Nikiti. A forest of pine and olive trees climbs down Mt. Itamos and meets the sea. The trees bend over the narrow coastline creating a dramatic landscape and offering shadow at the difficult midday hours. The beach offers organized spots where you can find umbrellas, deck chairs, and so forth, but also quiet points that allow you to enjoy the spotless, crystal clear sea.
It is one of the most beautiful and perhaps renown beaches of Chalkidiki, 2 km from the beach of Agios Ioannis and before the busy Kalogrias beach. The waters of Koviou beach are aquamarine, without many rocks, with a fine sand, ideal for endless hours of relaxation or play.
