Ios - The island of perdition
Ios - The island of perdition Reviews
Complete madness!!!:) Nov 05, 2011
I visited few Greek Islands last Summer and Ios is defo my favorite one!! I took a ferry from Athens to Ios Island which took probably around 3 hours. I decided to stay in Chora and it was a great choice. If you stay in town - you can take a bus to the Mylopotas beach- buses every 10 minutes and it takes less then 5 minutes on the bus to get to the beach & Farout Beach Club. I was considering staying in Farout at the beach but at the end of the day I chose Town and it was a great choice. The reason why is - Farout is only busy during the day, in the evening everyone hits the Town as that's where all the nightlife is. If you go out (and nobody goes out there before midnight) and your not staying in the Town - coming back to Farout may be a real killer as it's difficult there to get a cab and I can't imagine walking back home after good few drinks on crazy Greek roads!!! lol And the nightlife in Ios is absolutely amazing!! If you are not a party animal - DO NOT ever go to Ios. This island is full of young people in their 20ties and 30ties who came over to Ios to party all day and night long. There is big number of bars and clubs in Chora, every day they have different promotions for drinks for example for 5 euro you can buy 2 cocktails & 2 shots. Pretty much everyone ends up getting hammered every night. Party usually ends between 6-9 am, people go back to their hotels, have few hours of sleep, then jump on the bus to the beach, go for a swim to get rid of a hangover, then hit the beach or the pool with a strawberry daiquiry in a hand, back home around 7, dinner around 9, then get ready and party from midnight until early morning.....Ios must be Devil's fav spot as the evil defo lives there!lol I totally fell in love with Ios and loved every minute of it. So if you are looking for a party holiday destination - go for Ios!
