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.

10 Days in paradise

5 of 5
This little house right on the sea with its own beach is all u need. After a long journey from England over Athens to Patmos , Alexandros,a very nice guy, picked us up at the port and drove us to the house. The house got everything you need to relax. There is a car hire place round corner called camel where u can hire a car, scooter or beach buggy for a little money. Elisa and her husband a very helpful. Alexandros parents are very friendly to, make u feel like home. They left us some cake which was polished off in seconds. We told her about the probably best cake in the world and she baked some more. We have been in different holiday places but Alexandros and Family are the best hosts u can find. They are there when you need them otherwise they leave u alone. Perfect. The island is beautiful, easy to explore by any transport off choice. There are 2 small supermarkets in skala and a small market area with lovely shop's and restaurants. The island got lots of nice beaches some are rural, some with a beach bar and sunbed hire.and the end off our holiday Alexandros drove us back to the port at 1.30 am.

Excellent Stay!

I have been renting villas for a while and this by far is the best. I am a Greek living in London and love going back once a year for holidays. The place was way better than expected, clean, beautiful and most of all everyone was so welcoming. The restaurant is exceptional as is the breakfast that is included! Definitely going back next year. Thank you all!
