Hidden amidst an isolated cove in the area of Marathokampos, you will discover a small, pebble-beach named Agios Ioannis Eleimon. This spot of heaven is ideally situated for solitary getaways and calming dips. To get here, you follow the main road of Marathokampos - Kallithea, and then cut off onto an unpaved road for approximately 4 km. At road’s end you’ll find yourself in Palaiohori and shortly thereafter, the beach. In addition to swimming, every visitor should check out the small church, after which the beach is named.
A footpath at the church grounds will take you deep into the countryside and along the shore where you’ll find several, small clothing-optional swimming spots….far away from any peering eyes! When visiting the beach at Agios Ioannis Eleimon, it is important that you pack some food and water with you, as there are no facilities or amenities to speak of; it is just you and Mother Nature. The closest lodging is in the village of Marathokabos.
