The island of Ios, in Greece, is a part of the Cyclades cluster. Ios is a short ferry ride for Santorini making an extended holiday or even a day trip option.Over the last few years, Ios has developed into an island that has something for all ages to enjoy. For many years Ios was known as the party island, however, there is so much more that Ios has to offer.
Ios has regularly been voted in various polls as having one of the “Top 10 beaches in Europe” and it in fact boasts 75 km of beautiful, white sandy beaches. Ios still maintains a lively nightlife,the likes of which you will not see on the other islands. Unlike the “package resorts”, nightlife is concentrated in one place, Hora.
The nightlife is very cosmopolitan and still quite traditional. The main meeting point is in the main square. By day, Hora reverts to a beautiful tranquil traditional Greek village where you can see the locals chatting in cafes and playing backgammon.
