Ios, the sunny part of the Cyclades is located in the south of the island complex near Santorini.
A popular destination and known for its frantic nightlife, Ios is recommended to those who know what fun, dancing until the morning and fun will mean!
Apart from being cosmopolitan with luxurious hotel units, it also remains picturesque, maintaining its Cycladic architecture and tradition.
The beautiful Ios with its crystal clear beaches and unspoiled natural landscape, its fairytale settlements and its important history has many faces and if you like the alternations and contrasts, it is time to discover it!
In a short distance from the port of Ormos is the enchanting town of Ios. One of the best examples of Cycladic architecture, the traditional settlement of Chora is considered a protected monument.
You will understand why walking in the “stigmata”, the covered streets, gazing at the white houses and the churches with the blue domes and taking photos in the ornate windmills, where you will feel the sea air cooling you.
If you look up you will see Panagia Gremiotissa hanging on the edge of the cliff overlooking the Aegean! Do not hesitate to visit it as you will enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets of the Cyclades.
In the central square of Chora you will find everything you ask for to have an unforgettable time. Cafes, nightclubs, restaurants and accommodation of exceptional aesthetics.
In Ios the turquoise waters will entice you to spend all day on the beach!
You will find both busy and organized sandy beaches and deserted pristine pebble beaches if you are looking for peace and relaxation, beach bars that are full of life and deceptive shores.
The most famous and organized beaches of the island are Mylopotas, Agia Theodoti, Psathi and Manganari. Do not stress because you will find there everything you need!
Nevertheless, if you want to get to know the quieter side of Ios, we suggest Kalamos, Papa’s beach, Treis Ekklisies and Tzamaria. You will need to walk a bit but we guarantee that the landscape and the crystal clear waters will compensate you.
If the many faces of Ios intrigue you, do not be late and come and discover them yourself!
