A very beautiful open area in Nikiti, Sithonia in Halkidiki. The beach is long and easily accessible thus it is suitable for sport activities and open concerts. There are two beach bars on the beach where you may enjoy drinks and food.
Up in the hill above the beach, there is the little church of St. John (Ai Yiannis in Greek) dated from 19th century. The church gave its name to the area.
Just 200m away from the beach, on the main road to Neos Marmaras, there is a little café. There, you may admire a panoramic view of Ai Yiannis beach and also of the coast of Sithonia that continues to the south.
On the west side of the beach, there is a little rocky island named "Kastri". You may go there even on foot, since the water is shallow. There are remains of ancient fortifications and other archaeological findings on the area and the surrounding area. One theory links the area to the ancient city of Galipsos mentioned in Herodotus.

La mer est très belle à cet endroit et la plage semble très populaire si on se fie au nombreux parasols qui s,étendent au loin. Le point de vue avec les fleurs à l'avant plan est bien choisi.

acqua magnifica e bellissima spiaggia, la foto ha una leggera pendenza a sinistra, ma la composizione e il soggetto sono ottime.

Fabulous beach in turquoise, and a great view on the curve of the bay.
Colors mingle in harmony, blue and green with the sand strip between.
Made the right choice to post with the wooden railings on close range, that added scale to the whole.
Kalispera and nice weekend,

The colour of the water is amazing. A great view along the coastline from a nice POV.
