PATMOS ISLAND, GREECE

Patmos is a beyond spaces revelation. A well-kept secret among jet-setters, Patmos, the northernmost island of the Dodecanese complex, preserves its authentic colour and way of life.

Historically a place of pilgrimage, Patmos exudes an atmosphere of spirituality that seeps through the high yard walls built around the houses, which join one another, creating a high wall around the impressive Chora, the island’s capital.

Of outstanding architectural interest, Chora is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the few medieval settlements in Greece that have retained their character uninterruptedly since the 12th century.

Strolling around its narrow cobblestone paths, one is in awe, admiring the picturesque whitewashed traditional houses and the impressive mansions that appear to belong to a timeless era.

Crowning the Chora is the Monastery of Agios Ioannis Theologos (Saint John the Theologian), another World Heritage Site, and the Cave of the Apocalypse, where Saint John the Theologian, the “Beloved Disciple” is held to have written two of the most sacred Christian works, his Gospel and the Apocalypse.
 
Elegant boutiques, cafés by the waterfront, and lively restaurants change the mood in Skala, Patmos’s bustling port town. Wooden old caiques, are moored next to luxurious yachts and huge cruise ships, standing ready for departure.

There is probably no better way to uncover the island’s amazing beaches than aboard a caique, with its slow, lingering movements and the subdued sounds of its engine.

The discerning sailors will set sail to the islet cluster of Arkoi or debark in the distinctively unspoiled Fournoi, Leipsoi, and Marathi. Lefkes will appeal to the romantics at heart while water sports fanatics will undoubtedly rush to Kambos, the island’s most fashionable beach.

Patmos is the island of the Apokalypse. Reveal yourself, uncover your spirituality, swim free in its crystal-clear waters. Then return to one of the Beyond Spaces villas, where more beauty and new experiences await you.
