Ios Kolitsani beach: The small beach of Kolitsani is located south of Chora, 1km from the port. The beach itself is rather narrow, yet very impressive for its green crystal clear waters and golden sand. This is a popular anchorage for sailing yachts. It is protected in all sides by rocky hills and green trees and provides idyllic scenery for tourists.
Kolitsani has no tourist facilities, like umbrellas and sundecks. Kolitsani beach is recommended for nudism and more private sunbathing during the low season. Kolitsani is found between Chora and Mylopotas, ideal to avoid the noisy crowds and in close distance to tourist facilities. Above Kolitsani, there is a Modern Art Museum displaying works of famous artists. The beach can be reached on foot down a steep hill.
