Since there is no airport in Ios the only way to get there is by ferry. However, the extra effort needed is well worth it once you arrive on this magical island paradise.


You can book your travel together with your hotel package and we’re happy to organize the most convenient flights and ferries to suit your needs. Keep in mind it can be difficult to match up flights & ferries so sometimes it is necessary to stay one night elsewhere before you arrive in Ios. We make travelling easy for you!


The closest airport is on the neighboring island of Santorini but Ios is also easily accessible via ferry from other major airports such as Athens International, Mykonos & Crete. Request flight & hotel packages for summer via email at


Life is a Beachparty generally recommends to book your ferries in advance! There are often only 1-2 ferries per day to Ios from where your flight landed and during peak season they can be booked out. To book your ferries with LIABP please contact us at with your travel details.


Once you are in Ios, you don't need to worry about transfers anymore! The staff from your chosen LIABP partner hotel will drive you & you’ll meet our LIABP representative on your arrival at the hotel.
