The 109 km2 island of Ios is located in the Aegean Sea. It is a typical Cycladic island with white houses, churches and intertwined narrow streets. Although Ios is known as one of the busier islands (mainly thanks to the main town), it offers romantic corners, beautiful unspoilt beaches (some even nudist) and bays inviting you to relax. Active hikers will find things to do in the mountains, for example, on hiking trails around archaeological sites. The crystal clear sea offers the possibility of snorkelling and diving. Among the most popular beaches are Psathi, Valmas, Mylopotas, Ormos, Gialos, Koumbara and Manganari.
The main town of Chora (or Ios) lies on the west coast of the island. It offers many cafes, restaurants, souvenir, jewellery and fashion shops. Nearby, you can visit the peak of Panaghia Gremiotissa, which offers spectacular views of the surrounding area.
The famous resort is Mylopotas. Connections with the nearby capital are provided by a bus service. The long and wide sandy beach with sun loungers and parasols is one of the most beautiful and best quality in Europe. Ios does not have its own airport. Connections with the surrounding islands are by boat. Within the island you can use bus transport, taxi or rent a car or motorbike and discover all the beauty of the island on your own.
Distance from the airport:Paros (airport) - Ios 20 km + 90 min by boat.
