Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • They say it's one of the eight most beautiful beaches in the Aegean! I know for sure that is the most beautiful (mph) of IOS! The farthest to reach, whether by land or by sea! This Bay contains two small coves, the other bigger, where you leave the middle and bus close to the highly regarded restaurant locally, and do your 500 meters to the sea. Find beautiful water and chilly traveling from transparent, goes on the light green and then from blue to blue! Beach equipped with beach umbrellas and deckchairs, surcharge with related sport activities (canoeing, boards, etc etc) free! Then you move slightly and there are those "most spoiled" but still popular! In short a paradise to keep clean! Who wants to spend a few days relaxing out of chaos can in advance to book one of the rooms or apartments in the nature behind the beach. I'm sorry I didn't stopped more with my family! Go back everyday (no wind though).

  • among the various beaches of Ios this is undoubtedly among the most beautiful. wide and linked to other small coves, sand that slopes gently to allow the leisurely strolls in the water. beautiful colors with a transparency rarely found. Equipped with Sun beds and umbrellas but absolutely quiet and not hectic.

  • The most beautiful beach in Ios located at the southern end of the island. Easily accessible by scooter or car, is paradise. Gente tranquilla, beautiful sea and slightly warmer water of the other beaches since the seabed is shallower. The crystal clear water of the rest is a characteristic of all this beautiful island. Among the four beaches we chose the Central, convenient, equipped and with a friendly and familiar Tavern. They also rent rooms and costs €58 per day and 2 Sun beds and an umbrella I think that cost only 5 euros. Went back a second time and we were not disappointed. Suitable for those who want to enjoy tranquility and peace.

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.
