KOLITSANI BEACH: THE EXPERIENCE
Kolitsani is a lovely little hideaway from the crowds in central Ios. Secluded, tranquil serenity is what to expect from this gem. Kolitsani is a also a nudist beach which attracts a certain crowd. Typically the calm and quiet type. And who doesn’t love calm and quiet humans while they’re relaxing at the beach?
Like most, the journey of getting to these more secluded destinations also sometimes involves challenging accessibility. For most of these beaches you have to rely on google maps as there aren’t many signs for directions. From the parking area of Kolitsani beach it’s 10 – 15 minute walk down to the actual beach. Again this isn’t the clearest path but you will see some spray painted arrows in between bush and rock!
When we visited, there was maybe a handful of people there including a yacht and a couple who had kayaked in. The vibe was peaceful and it was the best swim we had in Ios. No big rocks in the water to watch out for while you’re doing the backwards butterfly… just you and the soft, sandy sea floor. And as per usual… t o t a l l y worth the walk down!
