Agios Giorgis beach is a beautiful and remote sandy beach located at the extreme north-eastern tip of Ikaria in a protected cove. Above the beach stands the solitary Church of St. George and Drakano Tower & Fortress. Access to Agios Giorgis Beach is via an unpaved road leading from the seaside village of Faros. The road ends where a footpath down begins, and visitors must then walk about 15 minutes to the beach which is below and to the left of Drakano Tower and the church. Sturdy shoes are recommended and don't forget to close the church door if you visit it on the way to the beach.
