If you want to experience the most relaxing summer holidays Patmos is the best deal. Secluded and quite small in size, the “Island of the Apocalypse” has its own distinct character. The religious past of the island is also evident from the Holy Cave of the Apocalypse, where Saint John the Theologian wrote the “Book of Revelations” and the homonymous monastery dedicated to the Saint as well. 

Worth mentioning is also the Chora of Patmos, picturesque with narrow alleys, stunning neoclassical and Gothic buildings and breathtaking views over the endless blue sea, it’s easy to understand why it is considered one of the most attractive Chora of the Aegean. 

Not only the lovely Chora but also the other villages of Patmos are definitely worth a visit. Among them Skala, Grikos and Kampos stand out for their traditional character and the typical architecture, featuring white-washed houses, imposing mansions and typical Byzantine-era churches. 

As for the beaches of Patmos, they are ready to provide you with the most carefree holidays! Other with small pebbles and other with golden sand, other with shallow warm waters and other deep, surrounded by tamarisk trees offering natural shade and above all, with crystal clear waters.
