The 3 Best Sunset Spots in Ios, Greece.
When in Ios, one must sunset. They’re too beautiful to miss and I would even go as far to say that they’re on par with Santorini sunsets. Yeah, Santorini! They come in all kinds of orangey, pinky, purple gradients and they hang around for a good 20 minutes or so. Having just under a week to explore this beautiful island we managed to find 3 incredible sunset vantage points that we want to share with you.
COME SEE OUR GREECE GALLERIES
1. Panagia Gremiotissa AKA 4 Churches Hill
This is the most famous and the most visited sunset spot that can accomodate large crowds without feeling like you have to push your way through to see the views. It’s a west facing hill that emerges from the centre of the old city and has an incredible view out over the Agean Sea towards Sikinos Island.
2. Belvedere Church
Another gorgeous spot with waaayyyy less people and also less space. It’s a more intimate affair that could be due to the limited parking or the fact that it’s kind of out of the way of mainstream pedestrian access. It offers the same views as 4 churches hill plus views of Chora and Mylopotas beach.
3. Amphitheatre Secret Spot
Our favourite, this sunset spot is for those who are willing to travel a bit further to escape the crowds. It’s for those who don’t mind scaling stone walls and climbing over large boulders. It’s a sunset spot for the adventurous who will be rewarded with a peaceful place to enjoy views that are almost on par with Belvedere offering the same views minus Mylopotas Beach.
