Introducing Ios

On Ios, you can have your cake and eat it too – quite literally. Spend your days exploring the winding footpaths of the traditional hilltop old town or ensconced on a sandy beach. Discover the isolated interior and then return to town in time for the party. Or visit in the shoulder season for a quieter pace, when Ios draws families and more mature travellers. In July and August, it's still the much-loved stomping ground of youth and hedonism.

While Ios is a popular destination, there's a special magic at work here. You won't feel pressured or hassled; instead, the islanders take pride in working together to keep their visitors smiling – and returning.
