Holidays to Agios Ioannis are all about lazy afternoons on the beach, lively nights at the local bar and unforgettable sunsets in between.

Silver-screen stunner

Get your camera ready – this sandy beach on Mykonos' western coast is a star. As seen in the 1989 movie Shirley Valentine, Agios Ioannis delivers plenty of picture-perfect punch. From the glistening shore to the Greek eateries, it's the ideal spot for holidaymakers looking for a little balance between sun-kissed beauty and evening bustle.

Mykonos awaits

Hop on the 20-minute bus ride to Mykonos Town for a lively holiday atmosphere. There's a bevy of beaches to choose from, plenty of shops and even a few museums. Stroll through the whitewashed lanes and marvel at the world-famous views.

Beach-based bliss

The beach at Agios Ioannis is on the smaller side, but it's a lot quieter than its crowded neighbours and just a three-minute walk away. You can rent sunloungers from shorefront shops, as well as order eats and treats. They have limited space, so be sure to reserve in advance during high season.
