Forming part of the Dodecanese group of islands, the Greek island of Agathonisi is the most northerly of the Dodecanese islands. It is surrounded by a number of smaller islands and is around 16 miles from the islands of Samos and 23 miles from Patmos. There are three main settlements on the island which are Megálo Chorió ("Big Village"), and Mikró Chorió ("Small Village") and the island's only port is the settlement of Agios Georgios (Saint George). The island is sometimes referred to by its ancient name, Tragea or as Gaidaro.
The crossing to the island can be by either conventional ferry of by high speed ferry depending on the time and day of the crossing and by the ferry operator chosen. Crossing times are around 8-11 hours by high speed ferry and 6.5 - 8.5 hours by conventional ferry depending on route and operator.
The Greek island of Patmos is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea, just off the west coast of Turkey. Skala is the port town on the island and is also the location of many of the most popular attractions. To the north of Skala is Meloi Beach with is picturesque and is shaded by trees. In the village of Hora there is the Monastery of St. John which is a popular site as is the Cave of Apocalypse which is thought to have been the sacred cave where Saint Ioannis heard the voice of God and wrote the Apocalypse. In the cave visitors are able to see the cross that was engraved by Saint Ioannis along with three small cracks in the rock through which the voice of God came, symbolising the Holy Trinity. The island is also mentioned in the Book of Revelation in the Bible where it states that its author, John, was on Patmos when he was given (and recorded) a vision from Jesus.
