Ios Ormos: Ormos is the natural harbour of Ios Island, located in the bay of the same name. It is the second most populated area of the island after Chora. This settlement is built amphitheatrically on the slopes of a mountain, overlooking the sea, with whitewashed rooms for rent, pensions and hotels, keeping the traditional Cycladic character of the island.
Travel agencies and bus stops connecting the port with the rest of Ios are on the port's square. On the main square there are supermarkets, various boutiques, fine jewellery, gift and souvenir shops. The area called Yialos, near the port, is an area full of restaurants and beach bars and extends from the yacht marina to the Yialos beach. From Ormos boats leave regularly for day trips on the island's beaches as well as to other neighbouring islands.
