Chora is the biggest village on the island and the capital. It is a typical Cycladic capital, built amphitheatrically on the hill above the port.


Maganari consists of a series of beaches. It is located to the southern part of the island, 23km far from Chora (it is the longest route on Ios).


The small bay of Papa is located southern from Kalamos. The beach is an ideal destination for families since it is wind-sheltered.
