1. Voted as in top 5 best WORLD BEACHES in the past December 19, 2010 11:32

The beach of Agiannis or Agios Ioannis (i.e. Saint John) is located 4km west of Sarakiniko beach. You can reach it either by bus from Karave (the harbor of Gavdos), or by walking one hour from Sarakiniko.

The beauty of the beach and the surrounding region cannot be reflected within the lines of this text. It is not surprising that the Discovery Channel has declared Agiannis as the second best beach in the world after one beach in Hawaii. Indeed, Agiannis is a stunning secluded sandy beach, in a wild arid African landscape.

There are only dunes, beautiful rocks and cedars around. The beach is not organized, but there is a small tavern nearby. The sea is shallow and the water is incredibly clear. Certainly, a visit will convince you that this wonderful place is one of the most beautiful in the world. Of course, naturism in such a peaceful place is allowed. You can also camp here, provided that you respect the fragile environment and the easy-breaking cedars.
