Ios is a Greek island located in the Cyclades group, Aegean Sea. It is a hilly isle with cliffs going down to the sea on most sides, that is situated halfway between Santorini and Naxos. The island is about 11 miles (18 kilometres) long and 6 miles (10 kilometres) wide, with an area of around 42 ml2 (109 km2). Ios' population in 2011 was 2,024 (down from 3,500 during the 19th century).
Ios Island is part of Thira regional unit. It was the setting for Ginger and Cinnamon movie. Scenes from the Big Blue (Le Grand Bleu) film were shot in Manganari. The north end of Ios Island has a ruined Venetian castle dating back from the 15th century. Ios is said to have 365 chapels and churches, like the days of the year.
The Port of Ios is situated at the head of Ormos harbor in the north-west. A 15-min walk up the steep path or a bus takes you to the village of Chora. Chora is a very picturesque cycladic spot, full of narrow paths and stairs that make it inaccessible for cars. The main path through this village is taken over by tourism in terms of bars, restaurants, boutiques, discos.
Ios Island pulls a large number of young travelers, many of whom slept on their sleeping bags on the popular beach of Mylopotas during the 1970s after partying through the night. Currently, Mylopotas beach has grown to an equivalent mass package resort like Paradise Beach of Mykonos.
