The capital of Ios is Hora and it is the only main settlement of the island and the only to be constantly inhabited. It is a beautiful traditional Cycladic village full of lovely whitewashed cubic houses.
The island of Ios is full of idyllic beaches extending over many kilometres and combining their golden sand to the pure emerald colour of the clean waters. Most of the beaches are almost deserted, without any rentals or touristy facilities to unspoil their wild beauty. A rare thing nowdays in Greece. Fully-equipped beaches proposing all kind of sea sports are also available. The most popular are: Mylopotas and Manganari.
The nightlife of Ios is famous for its intensity and its variety in Greece and all around the world. Thousands of visitors are coming to live the excitement and the great fun provided by the many clubs and bars of the island. A unique place in Greece.
