Right at the entrance to the harbor is the Byzantine fortress of Bourtzi, you will also find a castle which is built at the top of the hill offering fantastic panoramic views.

Otherwise we will choose the beautiful southern beaches of the island. Late in the afternoon we will head to the port of Lipsoi in order to find an available spot and to spend our night in a local restaurant drinking some local wine and trying the Aegean recipes.

Day 4: Lipsoi - Patmos (2.5h)

After saying goodbye to the special island of Lipsoi, we will sail to Patmos which is an island with a strong spiritual character and is also known as the “Island of the apocalypse”. According to the tradition, Saint John the Divine was inspired to write the Book of the Apocalypse inside a cave in Patmos Greece. Today, the so-called “Cave of the Apocalypse” is one of the island’s main attractions. There’s also a large monastery dedicated to Saint John above Chora, the island’s capital. Due to its spiritual character, the island plays host to many religious festivals and feasts, which are a perfect opportunity for travelers to introduce themselves to the tradition and history of Patmos. The sandy beach of Meloi will be our choice for swimming.

Today we will continue our route heading south at the island of Kalymnos and the town Vathi. Vathi is located in the middle of a mountainous site with the settlement stretching up the slopes of two hills. The surrounding area has a relatively arid feel about it with vegitation being sparse. The picturesque port is filled with local fishing boats and a few day trip boats which serve some of the popular tourist destinations in the area. There are a few tavernas and shops scattered around the village. Also, for the more extreme ones, Kalymnos island has worthily been established as one of the major climbing destinations in the world, so if you are not afraid of heights you could try something like that.
