Ios: What to do when you get there ?

In the south Cyclades and northern from Santorini you will find an idyllic paradise hidden in the heart of the Aegean sea. Whitewashed houses, high cliffs with blue-dome churches on the top, and the most welcoming people of Greece await you to offer you some ouzo and meze next to the sea. Ios is the island for your active holidays if you want to avoid the masses and enjoy a Greek island like a local.

Chora is the main village of the island. Spread upon the hill you will notice the cycladic architecture while arriving to the port. The island has many beaches, and is known for its 32 klm of sandy beach. Generally a small island, easy to explore from one side to the other. The scarce vegetation with the big blue Aegean sea create a controversial landscape full of magic. Ios is one of the unique islands of Cyclades.

To get to Ios you will need either to fly to Santorini and take a boat to Ios, or take one of the daily ferries from Piraeus port.

Ios will be the highlight of your holidays! Try some scuba diving or any kind of watersports like windsurfing or jet ski excursions.

We visited amazing beaches of which we may not have been able to do without the guidance of the tour. We had a break on two beaches where we could relax, go for a swim and bathe in the sand. Snorkeling kit was provided. We then went to Never bay where we could jump off the boat and snorkel around the Caves and Coves. Our tour guide was very good. Very knowledgeable and funny. Thank you Rory for a great experience! The snack was a tasty roll.

The boat ride was very fun and took us around to a cave, shipwreck, and ended at a relaxing secluded beach. Very much recommend!

The boat ride was amazing! Went by 7+ beaches, stopped at 3 for a swim - all a little different, and had lunch at the most beautiful spot. There were 8 of us and 2 other people joined us non our boat – one of our top 10 days ever. Such great value for what it was.
