“Paradise found”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

This beach is absolutely beautiful, with warm, turquoise clear calm waters. The sand is soft and the beach is shallow, so you can be very far from the shore and still stand on your feet. It can get windy at times but nothing to worry about. There are facilities for hire and a couple of tavernas and rooms to let. I would recommend staying the night there and enjoying a nice dinner at Antonis restaurant.

“Awesome beach”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

If you are on Ios, you must hire a car, catch the bus or sail here. The best sand, sunbeds, gentle cove and lovely sea. If eating at Cristos, have the salads, the variety dishes are all deep fried !

“Absolutely amazing”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Manganari beach is a must visit when in Ios!

We took the bus from Ios and yes, it is quite a drive to get there, but well worth the effort.

Manganari beach offers a lovely sandy beach with crystal clear water inviting you to take a dip.

This stunning beach and surroundings are unspoilt and this ads to a very relaxing ambience (do not expect any big hotels surrounding the beach). This is the perfect place to relax and revive and replenish mind, body and soul!

We had a lazy lunch at Christos Taverna which was the perfect ending to a wonderful day (see my review on Christos Taverna).

No visit to Ios is complete without a visit to Manganari!

“Take your snorkel”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Lovely little beach, with a wonderful little taverna nearby - Christos Taverna - you must have the calamari there, it is excellent.
This beach, is very peaceful.. a large cove, where they have some sunbeds and grass umbrellas. There is some rock areas where it would be nice to snorkel around. Depending on which way the wind is blowing, this beach could be a little windy, if the wind is on shore :) But the beach here is wonderful and pleasant. :)
