Patmos is a unique island with marvelous beaches to enjoy swimming and water sports.
The beach of Kampos, 4.5 km from Skala, is a huge, organized beach with fine pebbles and crystal-clear waters. You can rent a sunbed and lie down all day long or practice water sports if you like. In the beach, there is also the George’s Place beach bar to buy a refreshing cocktail if you wish! UK ELLE Magazine has ranked it among the 10 best beach bars in the world.
Next beach on your way, the pebbled Vagia Beach, is not organized, but there is a café nearby.
The beach of Petra (Kalikatsou) is one of the most famous of Patmos, with a spectacular imposing rock dominating at its northern end. It is a picturesque beach with pebbles and crystal waters. There is also a beach bar and the possibility to practice water sports.
Grikos Bay is another beach 4.5 km south of Skala, which is one among the best in the world. Overlooking the imposing Petra, you will enjoy sea buoys in a picturesque cove with lush waters.
The two Liginos beaches (the twins!) are located in the northern part of the island and are famous for their blue waters and the tranquility they offer to those who prefer it.
Psili Ammos Beach
Psili Ammos is considered to be the best beach on the island. It is found in the southeastern part of Patmos and is hardly accessible. Fine sand and a landscape of wild natural beauty is your prize if you walk 30 minutes from Diakofti to reach it. Otherwise, take one of the boats that sail from Skala Harbor to the beach.
Agio Livadi Beach
Last but not least, the second well organized beach of the island is Agio Livadi with fine pebbles, located 4 km from Skala. The beach is equipped with sunbeds to rent. Feel free to stay all day long to enjoy swimming and sunbathing!
