Agios Ioannis is one of the most picturesque locations in Skopelos. Its crystal waters and the natural beauty are some of the features that characterize this region, which is found 30 km north west of Skopelos town and 8 km from Glossa village. Like most of the beaches on the island, Agios Ioannis beach in Skopelos is gifted with turquoise waters and a majestic landscape. Usually, it doesn't get very crowded and has no tourist facilities around. There is the church of Agios Ioannis perched high on the rocks overlooking the small cove and offering a breathtaking view to the coasts of Skopelos and Alonissos. The church and the beach of Agios Ioannis have become world wide famous after the American movie Mamma Mia. If you want to visit the monastery you need to climb 105 steps.
