Its ideal location in the heart of the Aegean sea may be enough to convince you of its beauty, but Ios has become a summertime favorite for several reasons other than its breathtaking landscape!
Ios island is one of the most popular destinations in Greece, attracting thousands of tourists from all over the world. Mainly famous for the vivid nightlife, the island is known as one of the best destinations for partying!
Indeed, the party scene isn’t just about the epic clubs and bars. It is a way of life, even just for the days you’ll spend on the island.
If you think that endless partying is the only thing to do, you couldn’t be farther from the truth!
Surprisingly enough, Ios is also a great destination to kick back and relax.
Stroll around the cobblestone alleys of Chora, the capital town… Climb up to Odysseus Elytis theater to marvel at a breathtaking sea view… Watch the sun setting in the horizon from Panagia Gremiotissa church… Visit Homer’s grave, one of the island’s most significant historical monuments… In any case, this charming Cycladic island is a multidimensional destination!
As for its beaches, they are, hands down, some of the best beaches in the Cyclades! Make sure to head to Mylopotas, Gialos and Manganari to swim in crystal clear waters.
Are you into more quiet beaches? Agia Theodoti and Psathi will reward you with serenity and an unspoiled natural scenery!
