Known as the Jerusalem of the Aegean, Patmos island is the holy island of Christians, where Saint John wrote the Apocalypse. Visitors today are split into two groups; one that still comes to the island because of its religious significance and the other to enjoy the lovely beaches, the serenity and the unique character of the island and its people.
Patmos is a quiet island at night, but a busy stop by day for the many cruise ships that have made it a port of call. Patmos is a spectacular island with great beaches and a unique landscape, an island where tourism until recently was low-key but has been growing steadily.
Don't miss the unique Easter celebrations during the Greek Orthodox Easter where you will have the chance to see a staging of Christ's Last Supper. Also, take an evening stroll through the narrow streets of Chora and watch the sunset from Kastelli hill.
Psili Ammos is a secluded sandy beach with turquoise waters, accessible only by boat (a 45 minutes boat trip from Skala) or by bus to Diakofti and then walking for about 20-30 minutes through a path that leads to the beach. There is a tavern that separates the beach in two parts, one of them being used by nudists.
About 200 meters from the port is the beginning of the beach Agios Theologos (Saint Theologian). It is a sandy beach which is very popular on weekdays with the locals because they can take a quick dive, refresh themselves and go on with the ir daily duties.
