The white-washed houses of Chora and the stunning Mylopotas beach are just two of the wonders lying on the island of Ios. Discover more with this day trip on a traditional boat!
Ios Island Day Trip
We'll pick you up in Santorini, at the location of your choice, from 8 am and from there we'll head to the port where a traditional Greek boat will be waiting for us. All aboard!
Once on the boat, we'll cruise through the waters of the Aegean Sea while, for approximately one hour, you can admire the famous Santorini Caldera. Soon, on the horizon, you'll see the Ios Island appear before your eyes.
Once we arrive, you'll have the whole day to enjoy at your leisure. In fact, there's so much to see and do here that we'll even give you an unlimited public transport pass to get around throughout the day.
What is there to do at Ios Island, you ask. You could visit the town of Chora and admire its white-washed houses with blue windows. Likewise, a trip here isn't complete without relaxing on Mylopotas beach and taking a dip in the sea; did you know it's considered to be one of the best beaches in Europe? You're sure to be impressed.
At the end of the day, we'll meet again and set sail once more to head back to Santorini, but the day's not over just yet, as on the journey you'll get to witness the most famous sunset in the world! You'll have a lasting image of Santorini that you'll never forget!
Finally, we'll leave you at the initial meeting point at around 8 pm.
