Manganari: An exotic paradise of four bays that together form a breathtaking lagoon and one of the most famous beaches in the whole of the Aegean. With fine golden sand and shallow blue-green waters, it is protected from wind and waves, making it ideal for families with children and for relaxing far away from crowds. Part of the beach has tourist facilities, while the rest offers tranquillity and plenty of room for beach games. It is well worth visiting if you choose a ticket to Ios.

Offering every amenity, it affords unique opportunities for enjoyment to lovers of adventure and water sports, as well as to those who prefer to sit back with a refreshing cocktail in the shade of a beach bar.
Kalamos: A haven of peace and quiet on the east coast of the island, this long stretch of golden sand is surrounded by rocks and crystal-clear blue-green waters. Its magnificent seabed attracts scuba divers and snorkellers. Make sure you have everything you need before you go, as there are no tourist amenities here.
Koumbara: A refuge of relaxation and tranquillity near the port of Ios, with some great options for eating out at the traditional tavernas of the area. A magical location with spectacular sunsets.
Saint Theodoti: A long, sandy beach with deep crystal-clear waters and natural shade provided by tamarisk trees. Its location offers excellent views of the sea and the neighbouring island of Sikinos.
