Close to both Hora and the port, Valmas Beach is not very popular amongst tourists. This is because of its rather rough landscape. Valmas Beach is one of the small coves of Ios. It’s not ideal for swimming because the coast is covered in many rocks.
However, if you’re a fan of snorkeling, you’ll be able to enjoy your time at Valmas Beach. Valmas Beach does not offer tourist facilities. The closest facilities are found in Ormos and Hora, so plan ahead of time for food and drinks. If you forget and find yourself hankering for a snack, Hora is about 15 minutes by foot.
