Cosy Patmos is an attractive mix of small hills and beach-lined bays. The northernmost of the Dodecanese islands, it was here that St. John the Divine wrote the Book of Revelations (the Apocalypse), thus making it a place of pilgrimage for both Orthodox and Western Christians.

It equally appeals to the culturally inclined, gastronomes and travelers simply seeking to unwind. Most who visit place it near the top of their list of favourite islands.
