Loretzena Ios: Ios is known for its secluded beaches that comprise an ideal escape from the noisy crowds. Loretzena is one of them, with crystal clear waters and exotic atmosphere. It is located 5km north west of Chora, just before Diamoudia beach. This beautiful cove has a small capacity and no tourist facilities. It provides remarkable views to the Aegean Sea and it is surrounded by rocky landscape. The seabed is not perfect for swimming because of the large rocks, but it is a good chance for snorkeling.
