Dressed in white, with four poster beds and fine antique furniture, the suites at Porto Scoutari are among the most stylish and spacious on Patmos. The 34-key hotel is spread across four low-rise wings built amphitheatrically above Meloi bay, so it never feels crowded.

A tranquil, heart-shaped pool, small spa and gym are set in well-maintained gardens studded with palm trees. The chapel in the grounds and romantic ambience make this a popular wedding venue.

One kilometre north of Skala, the lively port of Patmos, the hotel is secluded but easy to access. It’s a 10-minute walk to the beach. Reasonable low-season rates include complimentary transfers to and from the port.

Service is exceptional, overseen by the owner Elina Scoutari.

Cave of the Apocalypse

Cave of the Apocalypse

Patmos, Greek Islands, Greece[2.3 miles]

This creepy cavern is where St. John the Evangelist had his apocalyptic revelations (which became the last book of the New Testament). Adorned with 12th-century wall paintings and shimmering icons, the sacred grotto is often packed with Greek pilgrims, as well as day trippers from the many cruise ships that service Patmos.

Lambi Beach

Lambi Beach

Patmos, Greek Islands, Greece[4.2 miles]

A tranquil beach in the north of the island, famous for its beautiful, multicoloured pebbles. But beware: you can be fined if you remove any pebbles from the beach.

Psili Ammos beach

Psili Ammos beach

Patmos, Greek Islands, Greece[6.3 miles]

Patmos is short on sandy beaches, but Psili Ammos (meaning ‘fine sand’) is a gem. It’s only accessible by water taxi from Skala or a one-hour hike over the hills from Grikos, rewarded by ice-cold beer and stewed goat at the shady taverna on arrival.

Best for ages: 4+ | Free
