Day 3: Leros - Patmos

Route from Bodrum to the northern islands of the Dodecanese

Patmos

Patmos, like some other northern islands in the Southern Sporades, has a dramatically-jagged coastline, which yachtsmen find particularly alluring. Patmos’ main port is Skala, situated on the shores of a rather large bay – by local standards anyway. Every day in the harbour, curious tourists flock to the waterfront, headed to the island’s main attraction – the Monastery of St. John the Apostle. The saint was banished by Emperor Domitian into exile on Patmos, where he lived in a cave and wrote “Revelation” and “Apocalypse.”

From the monastery walls to the shore run the tidy streets and neoclassical buildings of Chora – considered one of the most picturesque island capitals of its kind. The surroundings here are tranquil and serene.

Patmos has its beaches too. Kambos and Grikos are the most frequented, Meloi and Aspri – the most quiet and wind-free, and Psili Amos – the most beautiful and inaccessible (but not for those travelling by yacht).
