Patmos has beautiful beaches, traditional white house on a hillside and great food, but there is also more to this small island. Known as ‘The island of the Apocalypse’ and the ‘Jerusalem of the Aegean’ has been drawing pilgrims from around the Christian world for centuries.
Patmos is a small island of just 45km is the northernmost of the Dodecanese chain. It’s shaped a like a complex jigsaw piece which means that around every corner there is another cove and another wonderful beach. The island is roughly split in two with Skala the main port in the centre, from the top of the monastery you can see the whole island.
