Beach · Nature / Park
Relax on a picturesque beach and visit a charming church at Agios Ioannis Beach. The small seaside area, boasting soft sand and turquoise waters, is home to the impressive St. John on the Castle church, perched upon a craggy rock. Hike up the 110 narrow steps that lead to the church to be rewarded with superb coastal views. Movie buffs may recognize the building from scenes of the hit film "Mamma Mia." Step inside to admire elaborate icons and ancient holy objects. If possible, make your trip to the beach by boat to best appreciate its dramatic scenery. The walk up to the church involves some sheer drops and sections without a handrail which may not be suitable for those uncomfortable with heights.
