Ios used to be one of the most famous party islands in Greece back in the 80’s and 90’s but this has changed nowadays. Today, Ios island has some of the most impressive hotels in Cyclades and is now catering to everyone. In my opinion, Ios is the perfect island for families with its golden sand beaches and incredible hotels and restaurants.
Ios island is not that close to Athens but you can reach it by ferry from Athens within 4 hours. You can even do a daytrip from Santorini to Ios, as it’s only a 1 hour ferry to get there. There is no airport on Ios island.
