Travel Guide Patmos Island Dodecanese Greece
Petra is also known by locals as Kallikatsou which is a type of small crow (jackdaw) that used to nest there.
The famous rock has been a home to more than crows though. In the times of Holy Christodoulos there was a hermitage. Hand made steps, a water cistern and a drainage system are all visible and functional even today. The one word to describe Petra would be 'bizarre'. Climbing to the top will give you an intense feeling that varies from person to person. People have slipped off Petra so do be careful, climbing at night or with low visibility is not recommended. Petra Beach is organized with umbrellas, sun beds and a canteen.
It is a natural beach of chunky rocks that runs off Petra towards the south side of the island.
This picturesque bay has become one of the most popular beaches on the island. It is a sandy beach with some small pebbles and the water is almost always calm due to the protection offered by the facing island of Agios Giorgios (St.George) named after the small church that is on it.
Kato Kambos or Kambos Beach is the most popular beach on the island. It is considered the place to be and be seen and is loved by families with young children for its shallow warm waters. It is mainly a sandy beach with small pebbles. It offers everything from taverns to cafes and is very organized with sun beds, umbrellas and water sports. There are also tamarisk trees for those who prefer natural shade.
Psili Amos is an adventure. It is a sandy beach, which makes it popular, but it is a 20-30 minute walk or 40-60 minute boat ride from Skala. So it is not something you would do every day. This is a good thing, because it is everyone's favourite beach and otherwise it would be over crowded. It is especially crowded in high season (August) on Sundays, because of locals spending their day off there and the extra amount of tourists.
