Things to do

Chora:

Chora is the capital city on Patmos. Most island capitals are traditionally called either 'Chora' or by their name, which is normally also the name of the island. Chora is the major port town of Patmos, and was named a UNESCO world heritage site. This 12th-century city is known for its narrow winding passage-ways between whitewashed buildings.

Skala:

The city of Skala is a port city important for both transportation and trade. Skala was initially the entryway to the monastery at Chora, but had become an important port and trading centre by the 19th century. Skala is located on the eastern side of the island, and faces the island of Lipsi.

Cave of the Apocalypse:

The Cave of the Apocalypse is where John of Patmos (John the Divine) first had the visions that appear in the Book of Revelations. The cave has mosaics and is a pilgrimage site. The Cave of the Apocalypse is located just south of Skala.

Monastery of St. John the Divine:

Located at the center of Chora, the Monastery of St. John the Divine was founded in 1088 by John Christodoulos. The monastery houses an important library of manuscripts, and currently functions as a Greek Orthodox monastery.

Chapel of Profitis Ilias:

Visit the Mount of Profitis Ilias. The top of this hill, as well as the chapel that sits atop it, are incredibly popular spots around sunset. The view from the outlook point is simply indescribable.

Chapel of St. Anne:

The Chapel of St. Anne is a charming and diminutive chapel from the 11th century. Built by the Abbot Christodoulos, the chapel is located near the cave where the apostle John is said to have received the book of Revelations in a vision.

Weather in Patmos

Weather on Patmos is Mediterranean in nature. Hot summers are dry, reaching 30°C in late July and August. Winters are mild and wet, with temperatures rarely dropping below 10°C. In the far eastern Mediterranean, a phenomenon called the Etesian winds trouble sailors in the late summer months. Beaches on the western side of the island are to be avoided during high wind hours.

Travel to Patmos

Travel to Patmos is simplest by ferry. Simply fly into one of the nearby island airports, then take a ferry. Ikaria, Samos, Leros, and Kalymnos islands have flights arriving from Athens and other cities daily. Regular ferries to Paros, Mykonos, Naxos, and Rhodes (among others) arrive daily during the low tourist season and more often in the summer months. Both car-carrying ferries and catamarans make travel to other islands and the mainland possible year-round.

The big terrace overlooking Grikos Bay is a magical place to while away the time; it’s brilliant at any time of day or night. My favourite place in Patmos! Having the beach so close by is amazing - obviously we went swimming every day and not having to bother about packing a bag was great. You can simply wander down for a swim and then come back to the house and the very handy outdoor shower. The location of the (very spacious and charming) house is also great for various lunch or dinner options, our favourite lunch restaurant was FLISVOS, on the way to Petra beach. Having the Patmos Aktis Hotel next door can be useful if you want to book a massage, call a taxi etc. This was our first time in Patmos, but hopefully not our last. We had a wonderful time!

It sits high against the saddle of the hill above the quieter part of the main harbour. The wide terrace has wonderful views and catches the breeze even at the hottest time of the year; it would be lovely to go again in cooler weather and enjoy the wood burning stove. We swam, explored the island, climbed up and down the steps into town, but also cooked and read and talked. A wonderful place.
