Under the Grecian Sun - Ios

July 08, 2015

A spectacular rugged landscape and youthful vibe are some of the characteristics of IOS, an island known for its golden beaches and lively atmosphere.

Chora, the capital of Ios, is built on a picturesque hill with narrow streets lined with shops, restaurants and laid back bars. But the island is not just for fun, it’s also home to 365 churches strung along its natural terrain. Rent a vehicle and set out to explore the island’s isolated interior and 75 kilometres of beaches that vary from white to golden sand.  When you go, make sure to pack a picnic! Maganari Beach, Kalamos Beach and Mylopotas Beach are a few worth noting. If you go to Plakoto Beach, be sure to visit the ancient ruins where legend has it the poet Homer is buried. Ios is a study in contrast and offers something for everyone.



For an island known for its endless partying, LIOSTASI IOS HOTEL& SPA is anything but! From the moment you set foot into this stylish boutique hotel, you are immersed in a world of peace and serenity all within easy access of Chora. Liostasi is stylishly decorated in a contemporary feel with natural accents to compliment the island’s rugged beauty. Nothing short of fabulous, it is a place with no shortage of beauty, where one can de-stress from daily life in a soothing setting. The wonderful pool area overlooks a pretty bay surrounded by sun loungers. Guests can also dine alfresco at the restaurant or sip cocktails at the Lounge Bar and watch the magnificent sunsets.
