Ios is well known for its beaches. Vying with Mylopotas for first place is Manganari, a long swathe of fine white sand on the south coast, reached by bus or by caïque in summer. Agia Theodoti has the bluest of blue water and is favoured by Greek families in summer. Nearby Psathi is quieter with a popular taverna and is an ace windsurfing venue. Plenty of other fine beaches are only accessible by caïque.
