Although the island of Ios has become popular with its lively nightlife, it is actually known for its natural beauty and quiet beaches. Ios is an ideal place to explore beautiful island villages and taste local delicacies.
Ios is the most popular island in the Greek waters after Mykonos and Santorini. You can visit Ios, which can be a full party city from June to August, outside the season.
The island of Ios, like many Greek islands, is famous for its hill villages, winding cobblestone streets and colorful houses. There are also many Greek taverns of various sizes in the city center. Nightlife in the center is quite active. As you drive down the hill from Chora, you can discover the ruins of Skarkos, one of the most important prehistoric sites in Greece.
You can see the most beautiful views of the island from the amphitheater. Like many Greek islands, it is possible to see the iconic windmills on this island. Other tourist attractions on the island include 365 churches and chapels, one for each day of the year.
The most popular beaches of the Gulf of Mytopolos are located on the shores of the island of Ios. Popular soft restaurants and bars surround the golden sand.
For those who want to stay away from the crowds, Kalamos and Magganari beaches are in isolated bays.
