The places of the heart


The island where Saint John the Evangelist took shelter in 95 A.D. to write the Apocalypse is pure magic. A perfect mix of harmony, elegance and majesty, Patmos is curvy in shape and warm in the colours of the land that dives into the cobalt blue sea. Some spectacular bays fringe the area North-East of the village and the port of Skala. Excellent mooring possibilities in the bays of Kambos, Livadi or close to the islet of Agios Georghios or a bit South, in front of the village of Ormos Grikos. A visit to the enchanting West coast of the Island is a must in calm days

But the real jewel of Patmos is the quiet and solemn Chora, dominated by the Monastery of Saint John; the Chora can be reached by bus or scooter and offers breathtaking views over the two seas separated by a thin isthmus
