There are many splendid beaches on Patmos and none of them will disregard your expectations. The island can be divided in three parts connected by isthmuses, giving it the shape of a seahorse.
The southern part is the wildest and its jewel, Psili Ammos, is worth the walking path you need to cover to reach it: a paradisical cove with a very fine sand, guarded by trees that offer you a refreshing break from the hot sun.
In the central part you swim back and forth from Petra beach to the islet of Tragonisi, located near the bay of Grikos.
In the northern part, Kambos and Agriolivadi are organized sandy and family-friendly beaches, ideal for water sports, while Lampi mesmerizes with its expanse of colourful little stones composing the beach.
The Cave of the Apocalypse, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is a pilgrimage destination for all Christians around the world. It is said that the apostle John wrote the Book of Revelation while living in this cave during his exile from the Roman Empire.
There are 365 chapels on Patmos, blended with art galleries and shops, medieval houses and cocktail bars: an amazing coexistence of ancient, sacred, traditional and contemporary that emphasizes the concept of authentic Patmian luxury.
