Agios Ioannis is one of the oldest resorts in Pelion. Its tourist infrastructure began to develop back in the 60s of the last century, and over the past few decades it has completely turned the small town into a very popular resort.

Numerous restaurants, taverns and cafes will delight their guests with excellent local cuisine. There is also a small, but functional port in Agios Ioannis. There is a fairly regular water connection with Thessaloniki, Halkidiki and Skiathos.
The main asset of Agios Ioannis is undoubtedly its magnificent beach, about 800 m long. This beach is a multiple owner of the honorary "blue flag" of UNESCO. Nearby are two equally famous and beautiful beaches, Papa Nero and Plaka.
