Ios

Ios’ image has long been linked to holiday sun, sea and sex, with a reputation for nonstop, booze-fuelled partying. It’s partly true: there’s no denying that from June to August, the island is the much-loved stomping ground of youth and hedonism. But it’s so much more – if you want it to be – and the partying doesn’t infiltrate every village or beach.
