This is a well run beach with many cafes along the strip. In September, when we stayed there, it was not crowded or noisy. There are water sports available.

It’s a nice place to catch some sun and then sit with a drink at one of the restaurants. Great water if you’re a swimmer.

A short drive from the Hora. It is a well organized loooooong beach with lots of water sports opportunities from kayaks to Scuba. If you go to Mylopotas, rent umbrellas closest to the resort on the North side. That general area has the best beach,...More

Hello! Fly from Dublin to Athens and then Santorini. It’s a very short ferry from Santorini to Ios. Ios is an amazing place - far out is very 18-20 year old though! Depends on your age :)
