After overcoming my fear of heights at Agios Ioannis Sto Kastro, we headed down to the nearby Agios Ioannis beach. We had a view of this beach from the empty space beside the only taverna in the area and the imagery that we saw was probably one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. A small cove sheltered by small mountains on both sides with very calm waters. The combination of green and turquoise color of the sea was intoxicating. After the climb that I just did, this whole scenery looks like a great place for me to refresh myself.
A dirt path leads down to this beautiful cove and while my knees were still trembling from the climb, I can’t seem to waste one more minute of not being at the beach so I was walking surprisingly fast even with my knees trembling and my leg muscles aching. As we reached the shore, I was surprised that there were not much people staying there. With such beauty, I was expecting for it to be the most crowded considering the small size of it. It worked well for us though as we were able to get sunbeds immediately.
The water was very calm, probably the calmest sea we’ve ever been in during this holiday. It was so calm that you’d feel like you’re in an oversized bathtub, you can float on its waters and stay in the same place the whole time. Unless of course if you move around. The water was not very cold and not very warm, just the right amount of temperature for anyone to enjoy it fully.
We stayed there for a few hours before heading out for dinner. As we left the beach and started going towards our car, I had my last full glimpse of Agios Ioannis beach and I told myself that it’s definitely my favorite among all the beaches we’ve been to so far during this holiday. Now that we’ve completed our holiday and visited several other beaches after Agios Ioannis beach, it is indeed my favorite and the best one I’ve seen.
