Ios Island, Uncomplicated Hedonistic Living

Ios Island in Greece is in a class all its own.  Although not the most picturesque, upscale, historic or significant of Greek Islands, it is one of the best spots on the planet for a hedonistic adventure featuring cheap alcohol, party goers, great music and youthful travelers.  You do not have the usual distractions of other main stream islands in Greece so there is pretty much only time for  the pleasures at hand.  Ios pretty much just consists of a port, a town, a beach and dozens of clubs, bars and party spots!

Life on Ios is simple and to the point; wake up at about mid day, stumble to the beach to sleep a bit and begin the hedonistic pleasures of the day; go home before sunset, take a nap, wake up and party hard til the sunrise…and if one remembers eat along the way.  One road connects the port, the town and the beach so it is not complicated and almost impossible to get lost.   During the day, a pair of buses travel this route back and forth on a route that takes about 30 minutes to complete.  It’s so simple on Ios that you just have to remember to catch a bus at the beach every half-hour to go back to where you started from or ended…does it really matter?
