What to do in Patmos...

by Donna_in_India

Hi - we'll be coming into Patmos (by cruise) for about 9 hours in May. We'd like to explore on our own. Can anyone suggest what we should do/see? What is the best way to get around? Do we need a guide? Also, any specialty food/drink we should try? What should we shop for? Thanks for your help!

Hi Donna - only 9 hours....

OK, "do" the monastery - it takes about 30 minutes to walk up, alternatively there is a scooter rental right opposite the port cafe OR the bus stop and taxi is right outside here too (Patmos is VERY well organised to cope with it's cruise visitors). Spend a few hours exploring Hora and gaping at the view. If you have time take the scooter out to Livadi Geranou beach (only takes about 30 minutes), you'll see a bit of the island and the beach surroundings are stunning. Foodwise - try the ice cream at the shop across the road from the port cafe. For a meal, I'd recommend either Hiliomodi (on the left on the main road inland) or Ostria (turn right as you land...it's on the front (ish).

We're hoping to go back for nother fortnight in September...it's a lovely island

I would recommend renting a car or scooter.
Of course start with the highlights of the island: the Monastery and the Holy Cave of the Apocalypse. Stroll around in love Skal with its narrow alleys, white houses and lovely views.
Drive around (ask for a map or buy one) and visit some of the remote beaches, villages or smaller monasteries. Finish in Skala and do some shopping.

You don't need a guide in my opinion.

Halfway up to the monastery is the Cave of the Apocalypse, where reputedly St John wrote the book of Revelations. Doesn't take long to see (esp if on way to see Hora and the Monastery, and it's the reason why Patmos has been a religious centre for 900 years. Interesting to see, but wear reasonable clothing - a bikini/microskirt combo isn't going to go down well.

In Hora, eat lunch at Vagelis in the square - recommend the giant beans in tomato/oregano sauce to kick off. The square's easy to find - just wander around the windy narrow streets for long enough and you'll stumble into it.

If you're planning to walk up to Hora, wear sensible shoes - the old road (nice to walk up) is a stone path, and can be a bit uneven.

Travel Tips for Patmos

PATMOS

by LysDor

PATMOS

I did a day-trip to Patmos island with two of my guide-friends who were on duty that day (Free as usual!!).








The majestic Monastery of Saint Jean sits on top of a hill and is surrounded by white typical greek houses.

It was here that St. John the Theologian was exiled between 95 and 97 A.D. and was inspired to write the Book of Revelation or Apocalypse after he heard the voice of God in a nearby grotto where he stayed 16 months.

Dolphins

by southeys

Great excitement on the car ferry "Spirit of Samos" from Samos to Patmos when we sighted dolphins in the sea. We were making the trip in September of 2009.

Three of them paced the boat for about fifteen minutes then drew ahead and disappeared.

I tried to take some photographs but it my EOS 300D just didn't react fast enough. This was the best shot I got.

Monastery of the Apocalypse

by SirRichard

In the cave inside the monastery is where Saint John is supossed to have written the Apocalypse.
The Monastery was built around the original cave, and is located in the road between Skala and Hora. There is a bus, but you can go there walking in 15 minutes. Ask at the Tourist Info for schedules, it doesn't open at regular times.

Skala Beaches

by sandysmith

Skala haas two small beaches - although there are better ones on the island so we didn't actually get to swim on tem. First by the harbour where the ferries sail in, there is not a particularly attractive beach to swim from with boats moored here. The second is at the other side of the village - a small narrow, shingle beach that is not too uninviting to go for a swim. It is called Hohoiaka Beach, but it is also called Sunset Beach - the taverna behind is a good place to have a drink and watch the sunset - there are also tables actually on the beach.

Holy Grotto pf the Revelation

by seagoingJLW

St. John remained on Patmos for 18 months, during which time he lived in a cave below the hilltop Temple of Diana. During his time in the sacred cave, he supposedly wrote the Revelations as well as the 4th Gospel
