Situated halfway between the twin islands of Santorini and Naxos in the Cyclades group scattered across the sparking blue waters of the Aegean Sea, is the stunning Greek island of Ios. Perfectly embodying the classic flavor and character of the Greek culture, the natural landscape and architecture of Ios seem to be inspired from the fantasy world of a fairy tale.
Ios is a an ideal holiday destination for people who have a penchant for history and architecture as it houses some of the most brilliant examples of Greek designing that includes clusters of white buildings with blue ceilings, exotic amphitheatres and also the famous Tomb of Homer.
With their pristine golden sands and dazzling azure waters, the Ios beaches are regarded as few of the cleanest ones in the Greek neighborhood, to take a swim in. Among the others, the Ormos and the Mylopotas are the two busiest beaches in Ios, owing to their close proximity to the port and several entertainment facilities such as water sports and beach bars that are lined along the shore.
In case you wish to experience the calmness of seclusion on the island, you can visit some of the more isolated beaches in Ios that are tucked away a few miles from the hustle and bustle of the main city. Don’t forget to experience the city’s electrifying night life that manifests itself amidst the swarming crowds at some of the most popular clubs in the town namely the Orange Bar and Astra Cocktail Bar.
