Where to stay in Ios island
Choosing where to stay in Ios Island depends always on your preferences, budget, and interests!
Before presenting the complete 2023 list with the best hotels in Ios island, I will like to say a few quick things about accomodation in Ios.
Chora (Ios Town): The island’s capital, Chora, offers a lively nightlife scene, a variety of dining options, and easy access to the island’s main port. It’s a great choice if you want to be at the heart of the action!
Mylopotas: Mylopotas is one of the most famous beaches on Ios, with crystal-clear waters and golden sand. It is an area that I choose to stay as the beach and setting is just beautiful. Mylopotas is ideal if you’re seeking a beach holiday and enjoy water sports. Note that it is not a proper village, just a place with many different cafes, restaraunts, hotels and resorts.
Ormos: This quaint fishing village is located near the main port, offering a more tranquil atmosphere compared to Chora. Ormos has a small selection of restaurants and shops and is within walking distance to some lovely beaches.
Koumbara: Koumbara is a picturesque area known for its beautiful beach and laid-back atmosphere. It offers a limited number of accommodations, mainly boutique hotels and villas. Koumbara is a great choice for travelers who want to stay close to the beach, but still have easy access to Chora.
Manganari: Manganari is a remote area on the southern coast of Ios, featuring pristine beaches and crystal-clear waters. Accommodation options are more limited here, with a few small hotels and family-run guesthouses. Manganari is perfect for those seeking seclusion and relaxation in a natural environment.
Ultimately, the area you choose to stay in on Ios Island will depend on your personal preferences and the type of vacation experience you are seeking.
