MYLOPOTAS BEACH: THE EXPERIENCE
Mylopotas Beach is the most well know/visited beach in Ios. It’s the closest situated beach to Chora and is widely organised with multiple watersport/boat tour company’s set up along the shore. We took an express boat tour on one of our visits to Mylopotas, which you can read more about in COME SEE Ios Express Boat Tour.
There are also heaaaaaps of choice when it comes to sunbeds. Basically if there’s a bar or restaurant behind the sand like FarOut Beach Club, there will be many sunbeds/cabanas you can use. Some are free with purchase and some you can purchase to rent for the day. There are also small openings where you can lay out your towel and BYO snacks and the best thing is that matter where you choose to go you’ll get panoramic views over the entire bay.
The beach itself is lovely. Nice soft sand and not too rocky. Only downside is it can get super busy! Especially with the water sport activities. But if that’s your thang, you’ll love it. The first stop on our express boat tour a small cliff jump just around the corner beneath Harmony Restaurant & Bar but you can probably swim or hire a kayak to get here too!
We also recommend Drakos restaurant on the far left corner of the beach. They do amazing fresh seafood. We especially loved their Mussles in a homemade fetta and tomato sauce!
