ios, greece | farout beach hotel

One of the top places to party in the summer is Ios Greece. Both Susie and I have heard amazing stories of summers on the island of Ios and how much fun it is. Turns out we missed the memo that the excitement begins around mid June. Nevertheless, there were some pluses with it not being the busy season:

1. We always got an amazing spot on the beach with a complimentary umbrella and lounge chair
2. It wasn't unbearably hot
3. Lot's of great pictures without hundreds of people wondering around
4. There were no lines for anything!

There are 2 main places to stay in Ios if you are between the ages of 19 - 27, Francesco's and Farout. We stayed at Francesco's (ill post about it another day) and we hung out at the Farout beach during the day. 

If you are looking for a place to party during the day, Farout is your spot. They have everything you need and more! We were here just before the high season started so it wasn't as bumpin as it normally would have been during its peak season. Nevertheless, there was still music, bar service and a delicious menu.

They have lots of places to lounge on the beach including these luxurious beach beds! There was also people playing volleyball all the time which was exciting.

We were expecting there to be a big range of people from countries all over the world here. Turns out the majority of tourists are from Australia and Canada is a close second. 

We met so many people who will arrive here with a suitcase and a few nights reserved to stay at a hostel with the hope of getting a job and a place to stay in Ios for the summer. Lot's of people in our hostel did this and ended up getting jobs at bars, restaurants or spots on the beach!

Would you come here for a summer of fun in the sun?
