Manganari Beach, Ios

4.7
#1 of 27 in Things to do in Ios
About an hour out of the center of town, discover a private paradise at Manganari Beach. You'll need a car or quad bike to get here, or you can take the city bus. Explore the outskirts of Ios as you make your way to this quiet, idyllic beach. The often-strong winds make it a perfect place to practice windsurfing and other water sports. Two traditional Greek tavernas serve up fresh fish and seafood all day long.

    Incredibly waters South of the island. Fair fame of the beach. Sandy, clean and with gorgeous crystal clear waters. Prefer to not blowing if the episkeytheite to enjoy it more. Has sun loungers for those who desire more comfort and ample space to layers underneath!

    With the wind loses some romance but otherwise is a wonderful place. FUNDAMENTAL ADVICE: avoid the area umbrellas of the tavern and tourist buses arrive Christos because there concentrates the crowd. On the opposite side (opposite the restaurant Antonis) is much more quiet and charming. At the bottom, then, there are 5 umbrellas I rented from a fisherman's cottage. The TOP to enjoy the Bay in complete tranquillity. Wonderful!

Where to stay in Ios

If you are seeking the nightlife that Ios has become famous for, head to Chora, Ormos, or Mylopotas. These party hubs along the island's western shoreline are saturated in the summer months; upscale backpacker hotels and more affordable hostels cater to the large crowds. Though these towns' beaches and historical attractions are appealing, if you want to escape the touristy streets and loud bars, consider some alternatives--Manganari for gorgeous beaches, Agia Theodoti for a family-friendly vacation, or Psathi for rest, relaxation, and windsurfing.
