In the heart of the Cyclades, between Santorini and Mykonos, Ios is easily reached whether you’re looking to fly in directly to Calilo and decompress in the luxury of your private suite (the resort has a private helipad and dock) or whether you’re planning to stop off for a few days to soak up the island’s cultural sights, spectacular beaches, pristine natural landscapes and buzzing nightlife as part of a wider island-hopping itinerary. The fact that there is no airport on Ios explains why the island has avoided mass tourism and maintained its natural beauty. Instead most guests fly to Athens or one of the larger Greek islands and travel onwards from there. From Athens (Piraeus) guests can take the regular 5-6 hour ferry to the Port of Ios, or the high-speed ferry (3.5 hours). A choice of regular and high-speed boats is also available from Santorini (45 minutes), Mykonos (2 hours) and Crete (Heraklion is 2.5 hours away). If you’d rather a private boat transfer from Santorini we can arrange that for you.
