The Island of Ios

Ios is a typical Cycladic island and one of the most preferred destinations when it comes to entertainment. This island offers a large array of bars and clubs scattered around the picturesque Town of Ios.

Although it is most famous as a youth destination, Ios Island has many places off-the-beaten-track. Visitors love the traditional style of Ios Town and the sandy beaches, the countless churches and the numerous sights of archeological interest. Holidays in Ios can be both peaceful and intense, depending on your preferences. There are places in Ios where families with kids can spend a relaxing holiday and places like Mylopotas with the beach bars and watersports that are fantastic for the youngsters.

Hora, the main town of Ios, is the centre of activities on the island with many shops, hotels, and bars. During high season the bars of Hora become very crowded and are recommended for youngsters only.

Culture

Unique Experiences – Private Day-Cruise to Santorini

Ios is located very close to Santorini, so it’s a good idea to charter a motor yacht and take a private cruise to Santorini. You will get the chance to experience the unique aura of the Aegean Sea and of course relax on board, swim in undiscovered waters and admire the infamous Santorini sunset in total privacy!

Getting There

Getting There

BY FERRY – Ios can be reached by a highspeed or conventional ferry. During the summer months, there are daily scheduled itineraries from the ports of Piraeus and Rafina. The highspeed boat ride takes about 4.5 hrs., and the conventional ferry takes up to 7-8 hrs., depending on the layovers. Ios is also connected to the other islands of the Cyclades Complex (Santorini, Mykonos, Paros, Tinos, Syros, and Folegandros).
