Ios Beaches

Ios beaches

Ios beaches are considered among the best places to swim in Greece. Mylopotas and Ormos are the busiest beaches in Ios due to their close location to the port, the sandy coast and the many beach bars and watersports centres along the shore. Fortunately, although the island receives many tourists, many Ios beaches are still secluded and remote, particularly if they are located far from the main town. You will find below a list with the best beaches in Ios island.
