    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.
