#2 of 27 in Things to do in Ios
Mylopotas Beach has become one of the most popular beaches here, and it's not hard to see why. With golden sand stretching for more than 1 km (0.6 mi) and clear, blue water, visitors come for the natural setting. The beach is outfitted with lively beach bars, restaurants, and shops, as well as two water-sports companies offering a variety of activities. Explore the horseshoe bay and beyond by kayak or motorboat, or rent scuba equipment to explore underneath the water's surface. Two beach volleyball courts, one on each end of the beach, are available for public use. Take the guesswork out of planning a Ios vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

    Equipped beach in Ios. Many clubs and beach bars. All without having crowds from the riviera romagnola. Always only two or three rows of umbrellas. Sports for all tastes. Ideal for those who want the convenience.

    The place to stay in ios, with its hotels wide selection. The beach is very beautiful. Everything is on-site. The public bus €1,80 every 15 minutes you take either the village or to the port or to the other beaches on the island.

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.
