Ios: Beaches

Ios has more than 33  large and small beaches, almost all with amazing thin and golden sand. Out of its 86 kilometres of coastline, 32 are covered by sandy beaches. The visitor has  an opportunity of choice among many types of beaches, small or long, busy or quiet and with easy access or approachable only on foot or by boat. One of the most beautiful beaches of Ios is the beach of Mylopotas. It is a beautiful beach with golden sand, clear blue waters, which is considered one of the most beautiful of the Aegean and has been honoured many times with the “Blue Flag” (symbol of clean waters). The road (23km.) towards Magganari, begins from the end of the beach of Mylopotas. It is an amazing gathering of five continuous beaches, with golden sand and above all crystal clear waters. Following the road to Epano Kambos we are directed to Agia Theodoti. Its sandy beach and protected gulf in addition to its sunset views to the islet of Irakleia, compose a picture worthy of attention.

On the road to Agia Teodoti and on the right hand after the church of Ai Dimitris, there is an exit towards the gulf of Psathi-with the two very beautiful beaches which are characterised by their clear blue waters their quietness and their waves.When there is wind, Psathi turns into a popular place for surfing and relaxation. Her wild beauty promises renewal. On the east side of the island, we meet the beach of Kalamos. Usually very quiet and with spotless waters, it is an ideal place for snorkelling. The isolated beaches of Papas and Plakes are found westwards of Kalamos. Many other beaches such as Kampaki, Plakotos, Petalidi, Neraki, Diamoudia, Sapounohoma, Valmas, Kolitsanoi, Klima, Pikrinero and Tzamaria, offer a lot of possibilities for excursions and unique experiences.
