This monastery is located in the undeveloped part of Milos
, above the southwest coast and the homonymous beach which lies about one km down from the monastery. The access is difficult, like any other place in this area of the island, and there are no villages or settlements nearby. The monastery is open during the grand church celebrations.
The best way to reach the monastery is via a road which passes by Achivadolimni
and goes to Embourios
. Before Embourios the road forks and there are signs specifying the direction to Agios Ioannis
. The other option is to reach it via the road which goes along the south coast after Provatas
. Note that in both cases most of the route includes traveling over a dirt road with gravel.
