Greek Island hopping has become quite the fashion, but it’s certainly nothing new. For many years, keen travelers have been hopping from island to island, exploring the different vibes on each one.

It’s a false idea to think that if you’ve seen one Greek Island, you’ve seen them all. They’re all subtly different in their own ways, which means checking out as many as possible is a must-do!

The Cyclades Island group is home to one of their most famous Greek islands – Mykonos. But, not everyone chooses to stay on the famous island and may want to visit. So, if you’re staying on Iso, another beautiful Cyclades island, and you want to visit Mykonos or even hop over for a more extended stay, how do you do it? And how do you get back from Mykonos to Ios?

The Greek Islands have a very extensive ferry schedule that runs between close-by islands, and these two are very well connected, and in this case, you need the Mykonos Ios ferry info.
