Ios is a Cycladic island of the Aegean Sea. It is located 111NM from the port of Piraeus, between Naxos, Sikinos and Santorini Islands. It is a rocky island with a rich seabed and is ideal for fishing enthusiasts. A rib boat will offer you the opportunity to explore the most inaccessible places on the island as there are many beaches with no other access.
Mylopotas is the most popular beach where various happenings are organized for visitors. Manganari, Gialos and the beach of Papas are quieter sandy beaches. By renting a rib boat you will be able to visit Kolitsani and Koubara and many other beaches along the island and enjoy its stunning beauty.
As in all Cyclades, churches in Ios Island are numerous probably more than 350. You should visit Panagia Gremiotissa in Chora, Agia Irini in the port and Agios Georgios in Yialos. In the case you have rented a rib boat, you will have the opportunity to visit the neighboring islands since all islands of the Cyclades are in close proximity.
The most famous local products are the various cheeses which are traditionally made from sheep and goat milk. The “Skotyri” has a spicy flavor and aroma, the Kefalotyri, the Graviera and myzithra. You should try local fava, caper and oregano and local pasta such as “matsi” and “mermitzeli”.
