Agios Ioannis beach is a semi-private beach on the south coast of Thassos
. It’s around 30km from the capital Limenas
and that’ll take about 40 minutes to drive.
The beach itself is not actually private but as there’s nothing else in the area and at the rear of the beach is the huge Thassos Grand Resort Hotel
people staying there tend to make up the majority of people on the beach but if you want to visit from else where you can.
Agios Ioannis is fairly short but deep with row after row of sun loungers covering most of the beach. There’s no water sports but there is food and drink available from a taverna at the rear of the beach. There’s a volleyball net just behind the beach and a jetty where you can jump into the sea. The beach is made up of mainly sand but there are patches of stones in places.
At the rear of the beach is an archaeological site dating back over 5000 years. It’s believed the be the remains of a seasonal settlement where people lived off the land and fished in the sea.
There’s parking available at the roadside before you get to the hotel or if you’re staying in the hotel then there’s a car park out the front.
