Yacht Charters in Patmos
Patmos Gulet Yachts List, Gulet Bookers - Patmos Gulet Yacht List
Pilgrims head to Patmos, one of the most beautiful, atmospheric islands of Greece, and they are closely followed by tourists and travellers keen to visit the massive fortified Orthodox monastery founded in 1088 in honour of St John the Divine or the Theologian: the apostle who wrote a gospel and the Book of Revelations (the Apocalypse).
Visiting by gulet allows the best of both worlds mooring in a more peaceful bay close to the busy port and shopping harbour town of Scala (Skala) and being able to take an early morning or late afternoon walk up to visit first the grotto then the monastery on the hilltop surrounded by the medieval village of Hora, where some delightful cafes and tavernas give ease before returning.
Patmos has more pleasant beaches and bays around the indented and rugged island. Being so popular for visitors it has ferry connections to most islands as well as Athens (Pireaus).
