The Capital Town of Hora, Patmos Island, Greece:

Hora or Chora seems has nothing special to modern life and it lives in the past more than it exists today. Therefore, it could not be interesting for modern travellers, who like to enjoy some pleasures. It satisfies scholars and other researchers in history and theology more than it does for normal travellers.

The town has renovated white houses belonged to the wealth families during the 17th and the 18th centuries. The buildings in the white town start around the monastery of St. John and there are some paths leading to it from different places.

An ancient Byzantine path leads to it from the port of Skala. This path starts from the Hora-Skala road up to the town.

Walkers on this path come regularly from the port in summer, to enjoy walking and seeing some of the history of Patmos in its remains. All the monasteries here including the monastery of the Apocalyse belong to St John.

The beautiful Skala Town is well protected with its harbour and the town around the curve of the bay. It is a white traditional village and the port of the island.

The traffic on this port attracts most of the facilities on the island to concentrate in here in Scala, so it appears that it has more than the capital town Hora has.

It is the commercial centre of the island as numbers of businesses run in the port area and in the town.

The port is at the centre of a long coastline in the tight bay where the main quay lies and there is another port for yachts in Netia at the northern part of Skala.

The harbour road connects that Netia with the port and other places in the town. This road leads to the northern part and to the southern part of the island as well.

A main road starts from the ferry terminal across the town towards Hora, passing the hospital of the town at about 2.2 kilometres; almost half the way between Hora and Skala.

The main services are either on the ferry quay of within less than 100 metres from it. Among those businesses, services and facilities are the National Bank of Greece and the Commercial Banks with ATMs, at the port.

The post office, the police and the Municipal Tourist Office are all on the quay at the back of the passenger transit office and some hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and bars scatter in different places from the waterfront and up along the way to the centre of the town.

Those hotels in the Skala area are Effie Hotel, Blue Bay Hotel, Galini Hotel, Asteri Hotel, Casteli Hotel, Captain's House, Pension Maria Pascalidis, Suzana Rooms, Doatia Katina, Yvonne's Studios and Mathios Studios.

The road from the beautiful Skala Town to the north leads to some beautiful beaches in the island. Some of those beaches near Skala at the north are on short walking distances from the quay.

One of them is the beautiful Aspri Beach on the right turn around the northern part of the bay, about 2.3 kilometres at the northeast of Skala.

The beautiful Meloi Beach is about 2 kilometres at the northeast of Skala but it takes few minutes by a rental motorcycle or a rental car. The beach is sandy and shady in some parts of it, with a big rock in front of it at a distance on the water.

There is a camping area at the neighbourhood called Stefanos Camping, shaded by bamboo and it has a cafe-bar and a mini-market. It offers motorcycle rental services.

Stefanos Studios are at the back on the way from Skala to Meloi. It has a free pick-up vegetable garden in addition to its pine furnished studios and kitchen.

The beautiful Agriolivado Beach is on Agriolivado Bay facing the islet of Agia Thekla and is about 3.4 kilometres at the northeast of Skala. A sub-way leads to it from the road that runs from Skala to Kambos. It is shady beach at the north of Meloi and very near from it as it is also very near from Kambos Beach at the north.

The beautiful Kambos Beach is on Kambos Bay about 5.2 kilometres at the northeast of Skala and is about few metres from Kambos village. There are white houses and narrow alleyways in the beautiful Kambos Town.

Sub-ways descend to the beach from the main road. The beach is shingle, shaded and with taverna and a drinking and entertaining corner called George's Place. The snacks George's Place serves are not cheap, though.

The beautiful Vagia Beach is on Kambos Bay about 6 kilometres at the northeast of Skala and is a short distance from Kambos Beach and the next to beach it, is the beautiful Livaditou Geranou Beach.

Livaditou is about 7 kilometres at the northeast of Skala. This beach is served also by a taverna taking the same name. These two beaches plus the beautiful Alyki Beach are protected beaches.

Livaditou Geranou Beach is shady beach facing an islet with Agios Georgios small church. Some islets beside Patmos are only islets that take the name of the churches.

The beautiful Alyki Beach is about 7.9 kilometres at the northeast of Skala. Up to the north is the beautiful Lambi Beach on Lambi Bay about 9.1 kilometres at the northeast of Skala.

The beach has colored pebbles and is served by Psistaria Leonidas providing various fish dishes, mayirefta and other traditional food.

Livadi Kalogiron Beach is on Agios Nikolaos Bay about 7.3 kilometres at the north of Skala. It is shady beach by both trees and some rocky caves at the right side of the bay.

The beach has clear water, pebbles and small stones. The stretch of land between Cape Sardela and Cape Firos separates it from Lambi Beach at the east of it.

Secluded beaches are also available away from some beautiful Patmos towns. The beautiful Lefkes Beach could be sometimes one of those beaches.

It is on Lefkes Bay, about 5.6 kilometres at the northwest of Skala. Those are ten beautiful beaches in the northern and central parts of the island.

The beautiful beaches at the south start by Sapsila Beach about 2.4 kilometres at the southeast of Skala, on the eastern coast and down the settlement of Sapsila.

This is a quieter area as Lefkes and ideal for those who seek quiet beautiful places for different reasons. Among those reasons are readings and creational reasons.

The beautiful Grikos Beach is about 4 kilometres southeast of Skala. It is sandy and shallow beach with clean water on Girkas Bay.

Grikas is one of the beautiful Patmos towns on the hill. This beach is followed by the beautiful Petra Beach, which is on Diakofti Bay, below Kalikatsos Rock and is about 4.5 kilometres southeast of Skala.



The beautiful Psili Ammos Beach is on Stavros Bay about 7 kilometres south of Skala and is about 3.4 kilometres south of Patmos Town.

It is long sandy and shady beach. People reach it by foot from the nearby beautiful Patmos towns or by boats. For hotels on those beautiful Patmos towns near the beaches, see the image on the right column.
