Located in the Aegean Sea, the Greek island of Patmos is part of the Dodecanese group of islands. It is one of the most northerly islands in the Dodecanese and lies just off the west coast of Turkey. Patmos' capital is the town of Chora and its port is in the town of Skala. The island, which is also known as the "island of the Apocalypse" is popular with tourists from around the world. However, there is more to the island than this. It is a pretty island with traditional whitewashed houses, crystal clear waters, excellent food and a thriving nightlife.
The Cave of the Apocalypse, a major visitor attraction, is reputedly to have been the cave where Saint Ioannis heard the voice of God and wrote the Apocalypse. In the cave, visitors can see the cross engraved by Saint Ioannis along with three small cracks on the rock through which the voice of God came, symbolising the Holy Trinity.
Patmos is connected by ferry to Piraeus, the other islands of the Dodecanese, and also with other islands of the Aegean Sea, like Samos and Ikaria. The ferry from Piraeus takes about 7 hours to reach the port of Patmos. The journey to the nearby islands of the Dodecanese take about 1-1.5 hours, while the trips from Ikaria or Samos take a little longer.
Leros is a Greek island and is one of the Dodecanese group of islands and lies between the islands of Patmos and Kalymnos. Legend has it that Leros is where the goddess Artemis would go hunt as it was home to a large population of deer. The island's long history can easily be observed in the many ancient monuments that are spread around the island. Popular attractions include the Medieval Castle and the island's interesting museums. The most visited places on the island are Alinda and Agia Marina but for the more adventurous, a drive around the island will not disappoint as there are a number of lovely beaches with crystal clear waters waiting to be discovered. The island is also popular with scuba divers who visit to explore the many ancient shipwrecks that lie on the seabed around the island.
From the island's port there are daily ferry connections to the port of Piraeus and by conventional ferry and hydrofoil to most of the Greek islands of the Dodecanese like Patmos, Lipsi, Samos, Kos, Rhodes, Symi and Nisyros. There are also weekly connection to some of the islands of the Cyclades like Syros and Amorgos.
