What you'll do
From 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., this 4 hour Ios photo tour introduces participants to an area of wild, natural beauty rarely visited which offers spectacular views from extending out to the surrounding islands of Santorini, Anafi, Amorgos, Keros, Irakleia and Naxos. It includes a swimming stop at a lovely beach in a beautiful bay. The atmosphere is decidedly Cycladic: golden hills and rocky mountains near and far blend with the summer blues of the Aegean sea and cloudless Hellenic sky. At times, the Meltemi wind adds to the scenery by causing waves to stand tall and form white crests that force themselves forwards in a race south. The second part of this excursion introduces a large secluded bay with two lovely beaches. Mediterranean vegetation and ancient stone walls abound. We head downhill towards the sea on a small footpath centuries old with rocks sculpted by time acting as reference as we step. Swimming is a welcome option since the water is often calm and decidedly refreshing. A goat path takes us to the far side and up to a view of the island's eastern side and beyond. The undisturbed simplicity of the location is decidedly memorable.

Mark / Roxana
Mark has been exploring Ios since the age of ten back in the 1970s. His passion for the island is manifested in his photographic work 'Discovering the Beauty of the Cyclades', visible on his website (www.markwilmanphotography.com) which had a solo public exhibition in Milan in May 2019. Roxana, who sometimes participates on the tours, is the model in the project and also knows the island well. Both are physically fit and enthusiastic to show visitors the special beauty they've discovered over the years.
