Travel Type:

Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing Partying / nightlife

Customer Travel Tip: Try to adjust to the routine of going out after midnight and going home after the sun has risen as soon as you can. Sleep during the day.

Liked: Ios is for young people who want to party cheaply. Nightlife starts at midnight and ends at 9am. If that's your thing, you'll love it. Really cheap too, compared to Mykonos and Santorini at least.

Disliked: The crowd is really young, maybe a bit too young for me, but again if that's your thing then you'll love Ios.

Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing Partying / nightlife

Customer Travel Tip: Basically just like Thailand/Bali but no good shopping. Only good for the beach and drinking. If you want to experience the true Greece then don't go here, but if all you want to do is party, this place is a non-stop party

Liked: Great parties, cheap drinks, beautiful beaches... go on a jet boat tour.

Disliked: Too many tourists

Customer Travel Tip: Be prepared to party

Liked: It's my 2nd time to Ios and it just gets better! Harmonys Mexican restaurant is a must! The night life is so much fun. But if you want to meet people from other countries... it's full of Aussies, and then the Italians turn up.

Disliked: My bike got pushed into the water....

10 Jul 2012

Travel Type:
With friends / other travellers

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Customer Travel Tip: don't get totally stuck partying and lying poolside. it's definitely awesome for a few days, but rent ATVs and ride around the island for at least a day. Homer's tomb is on the tip of the island and has an amazing view - plus on the way you pass some totally empty beaches that are really nice!

Liked: the partying is unreal. i was there one week before peak season so the clubs were all still free to get in, but were packed. drinks are cheap and you just bar hop all night to scout out the atmosphere you like best. it can be exhausting but definitely worth doing for at least a few days!

Disliked: it's hard to do anything during the day when you're not getting home till 8am - you end up sleeping till 3 in the afternoon and then you feel like it's too late to actually go out and DO anything - although realisticly when you don't start partying again until 1am you actually have lots of time..

Customer Travel Tip: Go to Slammers bar! Such a laugh! Also try and get up early to catch the bus to the other sites/beaches

Liked: A lot cheaper than some of the islands! No thumping music whilst you're chilling on the beach either. Great nightlife with a huge variety of places to go all within close proximity of one another

Disliked: The buses to the more rural parts could be more regular than one once a day as I would've liked to go there.

Customer Travel Tip: Rent and atv and go explore the island, but don't fill up the whole tank, as it's impossible to use it all in one day :)

Liked: Remote, secluded. We went at the beginning of the season, so it was not over crowded. Small and intimate, easy to get around.

Disliked: Could have been more street lights in the hills to drive the atvs at night :)

Beach / sunbathing Partying / nightlife Relaxation / spa Romantic getaway

Customer Travel Tip: Season starts from 2nd week of may till end of september, so you should want to consider what are your expectations from the island. We went the first week of may, it was really relaxed, not a lot of people but it was not empty and main thing were open, while other were closed. It was a good trip tho

Liked: Kind people, most of them speak english, so we didn't have any problem to ask when needed. Food for all tastes and budgets. Cheap beer

Disliked: somehow expensive to take the ferries
