East of the beach of Richtis, you can see the rough and steep mount of Liopetro, which housed the fort Liopetro (at the site of the current Prophet Elijah chapel). Below Liopetro there is the very old monastery of St. John, accessible through a very bad road starting from the main road connecting Agios Nikolaos to Sitia (initially a cement road). Beside the church, there is the beach of Agios Ioannis, which is relatively rocky and, depending on the sea currents, gathers rubbish. The background to the towering phyllitic rocks of Liopetro is impressive.
