MANGANARI BEACH: THE EXPERIENCE
Manganari beach is one of the most picturesque beaches in Ios. Located 23km south of Chora, although semi popular, it’s nowhere near as busy as the beaches close to Chora. Shaped like a pair of balls, there are two beaches to explore! Both with crystal clear, calm water.
When we visited it was coming to late afternoon and that was the perfect time. It was only us and another couple on the entire beach! One of the first things we noticed was how beautiful the ripple patterns were along the shore. We sat in the shallows for a while and relaxed.
Although Manganari Beach has two restaurants, it offers free sunbeds and umbrellas which is a nice change and probably a good way to get tourists down to the beach and then to the restaurants. Separating the two beaches are some small sand dunes and rock formations. Such a naturally beautiful beach to explore!
