Ios

  • About

    For a few months each summer, Ios is still turned into a 24-hour party. Not as much as it used to be.
    During mid and low season, however, Ios is a quiet and peaceful island. In recent years, hotels have been built that cater to a more mature target group.
    The beaches are almost as nice and child-friendly as in Naxos and hopefully more adults and families will discover Ios because the island has so much to offer.
    There are some interesting sights and a very beautiful countryside with great hiking opportunities.
    Ios is one of the finest islands in the world and is really worth a visit.

  • Travel information
