Beaches of Ios Greece
Ios island has over 40 different beaches to choose from. The largest and most popular is called Mylopotas and is located within walking distance from Georges Place. You can either walk downhill for 1.5 km to this large beach or take the bus that stops only 150 m from the hotel. The beach, shown in the picture above, is really long, stretching out for 850 m and the water is lovely blue and a perfect place to cool of during the heat of a Greek summer day. Mylopotas beach has many fun activities to take part in during the day. Both in and out of the water. You can also rent sunbeds here or just lay in the sand as there is plenty of space to do just that. If you like to party then join the beach party at Far Out Club located at the far end of the beach. But you can also relax on this beach if you are here on a more peaceful holiday.
Another popular beach on the island is Yialos located in the other direction from Georges Place compared to Mylopotas. This beach is only 1 km away from the hotel and is also very nice with beautiful white sand as you can see in the picture above.
Kolitsani, Valmas and Tzamaria
You will also find some smaller beaches within a 2 km walk from the hotel. These beaches include Kolitsani, Valmas and Tzamaria. These are more secluded and you may often have the beach all to yourself. This is the right choice for a more relaxing and quiet day at the beach. Tzamaria is shown in the picture above.
You can also visit Koumbara, seen above, that is an often overlooked beach by visitors to Ios. But this is a really beautiful beach with water on two sides and only located 2.7 km from the hotel. So it is well worth a visit when you are on the island of Ios Greece.
