Patmos Island, Greece:
There may be more dramatic locales in the world, there may be more spectacular destinations around the globe, but few places on earth can match the extraordinary combination of features that draw people to the island of Patmos. Here is one of the best-kept secrets of international tourism: an island increasingly sought out by sophisticated travelers in search of a truly restful holiday. If there is a common theme to this island's attractions, it is that there is a sense of having arrived at a quiet and beautiful space, respected by all who come ashore. Whatever it is, Patmos has this special aura.
Here, too, on one relatively small plot of land — only some 16 square miles — are two of the most resonant sites of early Christianity: the cave were St. John wrote the Book of Revelation, and the famous Monastery of St. John. Both sites provide for one of the most spiritual experiences in visitors' lifetimes, whether they share the Christian faith or not. The profoundly beautiful traditional settlement of Chora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, invites you to wander in its narrow alleys, among white-washed houses and fabulous vistas.
For years, sophisticated travelers have been coming to Patmos to enjoy its fine restaurants, beaches, and quiet Greek island beauty. Patmos, frequently serving as the private get-away of Greek and foreign VIPs, has been left untouched by unwarranted modern-day growth and has been protected against mass tourism. It is this subdued atmosphere that pervades the island and provides for the most powerful ingredient of its attraction.
Patmos does not have an airport. You may visit the island of Patmos by boarding an airplane from the Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” to nearby Kos, Leros, or Samos islands, and from there catching a local boat connection to Patmos, for a total travel time estimate of 3-5 hours. Daily air and local boat transfers are available during April-October.
Another alternative is boarding a ferry boat from the Port of Pireaus in Athens, for a total travel time estimate of 7-10 hours. Daily ferry boat transfers from the Pireaus Port are available during April-October.
Inter-island boat connections from Rhodes, Kos, Kalymnos, Leros, and Samos provide for yet another option of island hopping, enabling you to combine your Patmos vacation with other island experiences. Inter-island local boat or ferry boat daily transfers are available during April-October.
Please note that Rhodes, Kos, and Samos welcome frequent charter flights from major European cities during the summer.
