Beach Nature / Park
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. Mylopotas Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Ios Edition.

  • Beautiful beach in Mylopotas Bay, a bit crowded in places but very quiet in the private area of our hotel Dionysos Beach Resort. Sea a little chilly but clear and transparent. The Meltemi didn't give us a break, but we were still fine. Several bathing establishments, bars and tavernas, some of which are really good.

  • Compared to other beaches of Ios Mylopotas beach is definitely the more chaotic feel only scooters, cars and buses pass by road

  • The beach of Mylopotas beach lies in a Bay width of 1 km around. In this kilometre you will find everything: all day bars, beach bars, tavernas, restaurants, fast foods and very, very new world! It's like having disappeared the greatest people and kids! Also you will find beach resorts for all budgets, from €45 up to €7. However, it is very nice, sandy beach and worth a visit!

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.
