Agios Ioannis Beach

On the west coast of the island is Agios Ioannis Beach. The beach got its name from the small Chapel on the top of the beach. You will be amazed by the clear waters here that you would wish to get inside real quick.

If you are a fan of exploring the water you can have your snorkel, but you can also rent it. There is also equipment for scuba-diving that you can also rent on the spot. Wildlife in such clear waters is amazing.

Many would say that exactly this beach is the best for every kind of gathering, or in some cases for being alone if that’s what you are looking for.

The main difference from other beaches is that here you will have to wear something on your feet because there are a lot of large and small rocks and pebbles that may give you a feel of roughness.

There are a lot of people that do not like rocky beaches and on this beach, you will find a lot of big stones even in shallow waters. When the sky is blue without clouds, you can see the island of Delos which is a pretty amazing site when the Sun comes down.

The water here is crystal clear and you can see as 10 meters into the water, you will still be able to see what is on the bottom of this beach.

Like on any other popular beach on Mykonos island it has almost everything that you can need for one day’s stay at the beach. You can rent s sun umbrella and the sunbed, but also you can find your spot on the little rocky but still sandy beach.

Also, if you want to, you can place your towel on a big rock, and let the sun of Mykonos make your skin perfectly bronze ten in no time. Being more overcrowded every year today you will have to book your sunbed and sun-umbrella because, with all the rocks, there are more and more people on the beach, so sometimes in the middle of the summer, you’ll need to place an order for your corner of the shade.

It’s about 10 km from the center of Mykonos, but almost everyone gets here by car, or in case you get here by airplane you can also rent a car for low prices considering that you came to Mykonos.

It is considered as the family beach and many people are not certain whether the clothing is optional, this one is sure for kids as for the adults because here you can get far away even from music if you don’t like it, or from the local bars that smell great all day and long into the night.

Also worth mentioning is that on this beach you can get by the local transport, your or rented car, but also by small boats that have a route and stop by every single beach on the island, so a boat is also an option if you want to spend your whole day on Agios Ioannis Beach.
