Patmos is one of the northernmost islands belonging to the Dodecanese island group, and is one of the many islands laying to the east of the Greek mainland. Many ferry routes depart the port, heading to many other Greek islands and are supplied by three ferry companies.
Most famous for being the setting for the Book of Revelation, Patmos still maintains its spirituality among the modernisation inevitably caused by the growing tourism industry. The harbour attracts the main block of tourists, especially in the warmer months where the restaurants offer picturesque views whilst serving delicious sea food fresh from the waters. To form a taste of the traditional values associated with Patmos, head to the surrounding villages that provide an insight into the island’s history whilst basking in the warm, welcoming atmosphere.
After exploring the history of Patmos, it is worthwhile heading to the coastline to enjoy the golden sands and azure blue waters that encompass the island. Psili Ammos Beach is the most popular with visitors, offering a particularly mountainous landscape that is perfect for embarking on a leisurely stroll under the afternoon sun. The entire island is littered in challenging walking trails and steep hills, so it’s the perfect place to escape the stress of the modern world.
Patmos is fairly small so it is possible to cover much of the island by foot. Alternatively, there are taxis readily available.
