Ikaria got its name from Icarus, the boy who was drowned into the sea after the sun burnt his wings when flying. It is a lush green island with gorgeous beaches, the perfect laid-back place. Swimming in fantastic beaches and hiking are the most popular things to do in Ikaria. Some of the beaches are secluded and naturist, such as Nas beach.
