All the aforementioned locations are serviced by international airports to which, one can fly from most major European capitals. Ios also has a heliport. The islands key location within the Aegean sea and the close proximity of the Cyclades, make it ideal for cruises to the nearby islands of Santorini, Naxos, Paros, Mykonos, Amorgos, Sifnos or even day trips to explore the beauty and tradition of the smaller remote islands of Sikinos, Folegandros, Iraklia, Sxinousa, Donousa and Koufonisia.
Ios is privileged by the lack of an airport that has allowed the preservation of its wonderful unspoiled beaches and has protected the vernacular village's traditional architecture from the fast paced tourist development of the past decades. Therefore, the island holds many secluded secrets to be exclusively enjoyed. The "Big Blue", best describes the crystal clear sea of Ios and its magnificent scenic beaches that have been selected as inspirational settings for film productions such as "Le Grand Bleu" of Luc Besson and "Dillo Con Parole Mio" of Daniele Luchetti and many advertisements in search for exotic scenery of unsurpassed allure.
