KOUMBARA BEACH: THE EXPERIENCE
Koumbara is known to be one of the best beaches in Ios. It’s definitely one of the more famous beaches during the island’s high season (July – August). The popular beach is very well known for its two huge day club/restaurants, Erego and Pathos. When we visited it was the end of September and the beach was a absolute ghost town!
We knew we wanted to visit multiple beaches on this day so we got to our first stop, Koumbara, at around 9am. Once we got on the beach we noticed everything was packed up and closed. It was an eery feeling. On the entire beach it was just us and another couple who were snorkeling.
Once we got down to the beach, we sent the drone up and took a few photos then went over to the snorkeling side and spoke to the man who went in. He said the snorkeling was next level! We wish we bought some with us. The water was so unbelievably clear.
Across from the little snorkeling cove is 3 caves you can explore. Two big and one small. In the express tour we did, we stopped at the caves and a few of the girls on our boat swam through them. We were two scaredy-cats and stayed on the boat.
It all depends on what you enjoy doing and your kinda vibe but we were glad we came just after tourist season in mid September. If you don’t mind the crowds and like to party, come to Ios in July or August and you’ll love Koumbara Beach.
