About Ios

Ios island is situated in the Greek Cyclades Islands and is a famous tourist destination, attracting visitors with its golden beaches and the characteristic Aegean architecture. The island is just 18km long and 10km wide with a small population of 1,820 people.

Ios is also well known as one of the top Greek party islands alongside Mykonos, with its wealth of discos and bars in the main town; Chora and the various beaches. Most tourists either stay in the many hotels within the main village of Chora or head to the package beach areas of Theodoti, Kalamos and Manganari.

Ios, however, also caters for people looking for a quieter, more relaxing holiday, with its long stretches of sandy beaches and crystal clear waters.

Ios Port

The island of Ios is situated between the Cycladic Islands of Naxos and Santorini and is approximately 100 miles from the mainland port of Piraeus. Like many Greek island ports, the port of Ios is only basic but functional. The small size of the island means the port is very easy to find.

Ios port facilities

The Ios ferry port, also known as Gialos harbour, is quite a lively and bustling port in the summer months with a number of ferries arriving daily from mainland Greece and other popular Cycladic Islands.

From there the bus or a 15-minute walk up the steep donkey path takes you to the village, known as Chora. This is a white and very picturesque cycladic village, full of stairs and narrow walks making it inaccessible for cars of any kind.

The port does not have many facilities on offer, however Gialos itself has a nice sandy beach and there are many tavernas and bars along the seafront, allowing you to relax and enjoy a cold drink, whilst waiting for the ferry.

Getting to Ios port

The port on Ios is easily found from the whole island - just follow the signposts.
