In Magganitis

The aquamarine of Ikaria! A real gem in the south! One of the most beautiful Ikarian beaches that you shouldn't miss!

Created several years ago by a landslide, caused by the opening of a tunnel to build the road serving the village of Magganitis, this is an "exotic" beach, as its name suggests: blue waters, white sands and impressive white cliffs create a magical vista!

It has become very famous in recent years. Near the beach are several cafes, restaurants and rooms to let.

The beach consists of pebbles and sand and is not organised. It has many underwater caves waiting to be explored. Ideal for couples and young people. 

Tip! Don’t forget your mask for diving on the seabed and of course jumping around the big white granite rocks!


Leave the car on the main road in an outdoor parking lot. The beach is accessed only on foot after a walk of 7 minutes from the main road along a rough path and descent.

Caution and sturdy shoes are required for this difficult walk, but it’s worth it!
