Ios Koumbara beach

General information

Koumbara (or Koumpara) Beach in Ios is a lengthy, sandy seashore that boasts shallow, clear sea waters not far from the port of Ios! Entering this Blue-Flag-awarded beach, one will spot a few rocks, though a few steps in Koumbara’s waters, the seabed becomes sandy and smooth! On top of that, its fantastic sunset views alone provide a solid enough reason to visit the beach, while it is also a perfect spot to try out a watersport, making it a true gem of Ios Island!

It is a partly organized beach destination, featuring a handful of sun loungers and sun umbrellas for rent along the shore, though there are also various spots without any on-the-beach facilities! Also, there are a couple of nearby snack spots and restaurants, ideal for grabbing a refreshing drink or a quick meal! Moreover, Koumbara can be reached on foot or by hopping on a local bus!

    Swim and dance in beach bars
    Koumbara is the best beach close to Chora. It gets popular with young people mostly. At first, you wil see a long beach with yellow sand and some wooden unbrellas. Do not expect to catch any umbrellas though, except if you go early, before noon. Then you will appreciate the warm and clean water. Our hotel was close to Koumpara, so we spent a lot of our time there, swimming or dancing in the beach bars.

    The best
    The best beach I went on ios was Koumbara. Its sand was the best thing, very soft and pall. I enjoyed a lot the hours I spent there because it was much fun. There is a tavern at the edge of the beach and it cooks deliciously. I found the seafloor a bit rocky, but it is OK, I didn't mind very much.
