Agios Ioannis is only 10 minutes from Mykonos town by local bus but it feels like a different world. It is a special part of the island with the most vivid colours, the brightest light and, above all, quietness. Here you will find a few beach-side tavernas, a small mini-market for all your provisions and a cafe/restaurant all just a few minutes from the Panthea Residence.

Enjoy the 5 minute stroll down to the small picturesque harbour and the beautiful 17th century Church of Saint John. Please click here for more pictures of this beautiful part of our island

The area was made famous worldwide when the Oscar winning movie Shirley Valentine was filmed here. However, long before its film debut many people came to Agios Ioannis to see and feel a different part of Mykonos. T
ales are told of the beautiful mermaids at Agios Ioannis luring people to their world at the bottom of the sea, late in the evening. It should be said that in times long past, pirates used this beach after dark to bring in their bounty and it is thought it was they who created the mermaid tale. They did not want local people to be in the area when they were unloading their 'treasures'!
