Agios Ioannis Introduction

Agios Ioannis is considered to have one of the most beautiful beaches on Mykonos. It lies around a bay surrounded by parched hills, and is made up of long stretches of sand interspersed with small coves. Agios Ioannis looks out across the sea to the sacred island of Delos which is one of the most important historical and archaeological sites in Greece. There is a range of hotels and apartments catering for all budgets and tavernas and restaurants catering for most tastes.

Why Go To Agios Ioannis?

If you are looking for guaranteed summer sun, a soft sandy beach and clear blue sea, an Agios Ioannis holiday is the one for you.

Agios Ioannis - The Place
