A picturesque village, the balcony of Pelion, having a marvelous view to the deep blue of the Aegean Sea. The cobbled roads, the footpaths and the fountains made of stone, offer a fine opportunity for long walks inside the village as well as the forest.
Agios loannis provides a wide selection of waterside tavernas and bars, many of which do stay open late into the night, particularly at weekends and in July and August.
Agios loannis sits on the middle of three striking beaches. Flanked by the almost Indian Ocean-like beach of Plaka (last picture on the right) and the white pebbles and sand of Papa Nero. Beautiful beaches around all along this spectacular Aegean coastline - some accessible on foot, others by taxi or car. This Aegean coastline does occasionally experience strong currents and guests should pay attention to local beach regulations. Whilst providing all the ingredients for a perfect beach holiday, there is much to do besides.
The mountain villages of Zagora, Mouresi and Tsagarada are readily accessible and provide the opportunity to dine in an attractive village square.
The picturesque churches of Agios Georgios, Agios Dimitrios, Agios loannis Theologos, Metamorfosi tou Sotiros and Panagia are decorated with marvelous murals and woodcut iconostasis worth seeing. The Byzantine church of Metamorfosi tou Sotiros is the only church in Pelion having five domes.
