One of the island’s best beaches
At around 250m, Agios Ioannis Beach may be small, but it has a supreme setting. Its fine, honey-hued sands lead to translucent turquoise waters. The waves are calm, the atmosphere’s quiet, so bring your beach towel and settle in for a day of lazing and sunbathing.
Amazing ancient history
You can see the temple-strewn silhouette of Delos as you gaze east from Agios Ioannis. It’s an entire, uninhabited island filled with ancient Greek structures. It’s certainly worthy of its UNESCO World Heritage Site status. Look out for the weatherworn statues at the Terrace of the Lions.
A visit to the capital
It’s just a 5km drive from Agios Ioannis to the island’s capital, Mykonos Town. This vibrant centrepiece is a focal point for vibrant bars and restaurants. While you’re there, don’t forget to check out Little Venice – it’s a beautiful part of town where bright white buildings face the open waves.
