Ios , Greece: Party on! Have you been?
December 8, 2006 8:29am CST
I went to Ios (one of the Greek Islands). It was beautiful. It is hilly and has a nice beach?. Well, enough about the scenery?. You want to know about the parties, right? Well, this is one of the main reason people come to Ios. It is "the party island". Ios hosts young people from all over the world. Many Swedes spend the summer there working in the restaurants and nightclubs. Most of the people visiting are English speakers (Americans, Canadians, Australians,?.). If you are looking for some major parties Ios is the place to go. Most of the clubs don?t begin to get crowded until after midnight. Vacationers dance to European dance music and down alcoholic beverages until the sun comes up. The clubs are nice with big dance floors- although many people end up dancing on the tables. During the day Ios is nice as well. There are cute souvenir shops, good gyro stands, and a beautiful beach (clothing optional). I recommend going to Ios before the peak time. That is before July. I went at the beginning of June and it was really nice. The weather was good- but not too hot, and there were plenty of people to party with- but not too many. I have heard that during the middle of the summer the Island reaches its capacity and the boats will not stop there. Some people are very determined to make it to Ios. Crazy young people throw their backpacks off the boat, jump in the water, and swim to the Island. I really enjoyed my stay in Ios. I recommend you visit, but only plan on spending a few days there. One can really get worn out after a few long nights of non-stop partying.
