Getting Around

In summer crowded buses run between Ormos, Hora and Mylopotas Beach (all fares €2) about every 20 minutes. Schedules are posted at the main village bus stops and online. In summer, additional buses run frequently to Koubara, and less frequently to beaches at Agia Theodoti, Psathi and Manganari. For taxis call Ios Taxi Service; it’s €5 from the port to Hora and €5 from Hora to Mylopotas.

Summertime caïques travel from Ormos to Manganari via Mylopotas and cost about €12 per person for a return trip.

Ormos, Hora and Mylopotas Beach all have multiple car, motorcycle and four-wheeler rental outlets.
