Agiannis Beach, located 4km west of Sarakiniko Beach on Gavdos Island, is an awe-inspiring destination for those seeking a tranquil and secluded getaway. With its wild, African-like landscape and idyllic sandy beach, it is no surprise that the Discovery Channel rated it as the second best beach in the world after one in Hawaii. There is a small tavern near the beach, although it is not organized. The sea is shallow and the water is crystal clear, making it the perfect place to relax and unwind. Naturism is allowed but visitors may be less exposed in the neighboring beach of Lavrakas. Camping is also possible, provided that visitors respect the local environment.
The area is also rich in history, with ruins of ancient buildings and carved tanks located around the chapel of St. John. North and west of the beach there is a juniper-wood called Kedrodasos, and north of the cedarwood is a Hellenistic cemetery which has been declared an archaeological site. Here, 20 plundered and looted graves have been discovered. Agiannis Beach is a must-visit destination for those looking to explore a stunning and unique landscape.
