Absolutely perfect beach. The sand is brilliantly white and sugary, and the water is the ideal temperature and so clear that you can see little fish swimming in it. It also has great rock pools all along the beach that I spent hours looking in. Not built up at all. Overall, the perfect beach!

The most beautiful beach in Ios! Quiet, white sand and light blue water... You can relax away from noisy beach bars, however there are umbrellas and facilities and tree tavernas where you can enjoy a meal admiring this breathtaking view. A must visit!

One of the best beaches you will ever go to. Try to go the beach area in front of Venus Restaurant which is more protected when it is a windy day. In this instance make sure to go a bit early (untill 11 am) so that you find available ubrella and beds. In any other case the whole beach is... More

We visited Manganari beach during our stay in Ios. We drove all the way there with our scooter which took us about 45 minutes, up and down the hills. Make sure you have your fuel tank full. The beach is nice, the scenery is amazing, the water were crystal clear and the restaurant there (If not mistaken is called "Christos... More

Excellent beach! White sand, crystal clear water, like Caribean! Easy access (I went with the local bus). There are actually 3 continous beaches which all together are called Magganari. It's sure you will find your best point there!

About 40 minutes driving from Chora, full of people, but beautiful water. Other beaches have definitely more to offer!

The first time I visited Maganari was in 1992, when you had two options to reach it: by a small boat (that stopped last year) or by bus on a narrow dirt road. Things have changed a lot since then. There are several sets of umbrellas placed on the beach and more houses built in the area spoiling a little... More

I live in Thessaloniki, Greece, which is near Chalkidiki, that is well known for the great beaches (thin sand, shallow waters, no rocks etc), but this place...it was like heaven on earth! If you visit Ios, don't miss it! There aren't any beach bars, but there are two tavernas that you can have sth to eat or drink. There are... More

a dream beach, beyond description, far from chora, it takes about one hour with a bus to get there, but it deserves it, there are three sanded beaches, two restaurants and several rooms to let. Attention this beach must remain as it is,

The best beach in Ios! Really nice sand and water. It's a 40 min ride with a bus but totally worth it. There are sunbeds to rent and only 2 restaurants to have lunch (and not the best quality) but you can still have a nice greek salad and a beer.
