Patmos is not a big island, but it is one of the best known. It was here that St John had his vision and wrote the apocalypse, and this is why Patmos is sometimes called The Jerusalem of the Aegean. The Monastery of St John towers above the capital, Chora, and the whole island breathes of faith and devotion. Nevertheless, there is more to the island than its Christian reputation. There are many nice beaches along the jagged coastline, and the people grow fruits and olives on the green hills. The landscape invites you to take long walks and there is much to discover.

    One of the most picturesque islands in all of Greece. The beaches are stunning and even at the height of the tourist season it doesn't feel crowded or commercial.
