Ios – 50 Shades of Blue
We said goodbye to Naxos…
…and hello to Ios
Main town in Ios
We hadn’t planned on going to Ios, but with so much shut in the low season, and it being between Naxos and Santorini, we thought we’d stop by. I’d heard it was a party island…
…it was more like this during the low season.
Once again, being early April, we found ourselves on an island with most places still shut and being some of the only tourists there. Heavenly! We nearly had the island to ourselves.
It was obvious that in the high season the bars would be packed with young’uns. Remember ‘Stay Under 17’

Can you spot Julian?
Another sign indicating that this could be a a place for crazy parties
Julian found this Urchin…
and put it back. It was still alive!
It’s all Greek to me
This cat embodies the amount of activity on the island
In the late afternoon, awash with golden light, we hiked amongst ancient stone walls and fields in Skarkos.
This is Skarkos

Baby figs! Are they called figlets?
Church and moon time

Last meal on the island – picnic style
Bye bye Ios. Glad we saw you in the low season.
