Beach Hostels in Ios, Greece, for Budget Travellers

Beach Hostels in Ios, Greece, for Budget Travellers
Ios is a Cyclades Greek island in the Aegean Sea, situated halfway between Naxos and Santorini. Ios is a hilly island with cliffs down to the sea on most sides. Ios' image has long been linked to holiday sun and sea with a reputation for nonstop booze-fueled partying. And it's true there is plenty of partying to be had, but there is much more to Ios than loud music, drinking, and dancing, and the partying doesn't infiltrate every village or beach. You can also spend your days exploring the winding footpaths of the traditional hilltop old town or hidden on a sandy beach. Discover the isolated interior or sandy beaches such as Manganari in the south, and then return to town in time for the party. Or visit in the shoulder season for a quieter pace, when Ios draws families and more mature travelers. It's pretty easy to escape the crowds: simply rent a car and venture into the countryside of goat farms, honey boxes, and dramatic views. Whatever your interests, there is plenty in Ios to keep you busy, and these hostels provide an excellent base for exploring the area.
