If you Google Ios you will get the impression that this is "The Party Island" HA!, Perhaps the sight of our 3 yachts' full of old fogeys sailing into the bay was enough to scare the party-goers underground for the day!
Party Island or no tho' I liked Ios, even if it was the most commercially developed of our sail (until of course we hit Santorini) and again some excellent meals - and not just in the restaurants either!!!
It seems that the real party season doesn't kick-off until June and so the Island was still awakening from its winter's slumbers. Sometimes that's the best time to catch a place, whilst it's still a little bleary-eyed, before its had a chance to shower and make itself presentable to the world. Here in late May Ios was just that: the slight tang of previous revelleries still sweet on its skin tinged with that undefinable flavour - "Unami": that special taste of last night's love on a loved one's morning body.
Ach, yep! I liked Ios!
- Pros:Aphrodite's Fish!
- Cons:Too Touristy During The Season?
- In a nutshell:Yep! The Earth Was Definitely Moving!!
