Agios Ioannis Beach, Skopelos

4.6
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.

  • We visited in late September in the morning so we kostelíčka were mostly alone, resulting in a full season would definitely happened. A magnificent panorama that was worth it, even those stairs to the records acquired the terrible. I recommend you take a drink with you. Below unpretentious beach parking lot, but decent. If you want to visit in a disorganized fashion, so only your own transport. I recommend!

  • Great experience in a charming area of Skopelos Island, to reach the Church and the beach you must travel a winding road that's worth it. Do not recommend to reach the area with a sightseeing trip as the beauty of this place is a must try in relax with few people except in solitude. Besides the fact that the ferries dock right on the beach making it impossible to visit for those who arrive by boat, creating an impressive crowds. Spectacular staircase to reach the Church! Bring a pair of sneakers!
