We've not been to Patmos before, and since we are no longer the types to just turn up and find a room on arrival (children in tow!) I like to have somewhere booked in advance. (Esp as we will be arriving in late July)
The island looks small enough to explore on foot/bus/scooter, however we'd ideally like to be staying within walking distance of a nice beach.
I have read on here that Griko beach is poor, and that the western facing beaches ( Merihas?) are not that impressive either (too windy,and rocky?)
Where is a good area to stay?
Looking at a couple of guide books either Blue Bay ( in the konsolato area) or the Australis in the netia area both seem to be well recommended. How far a walk are these from a decent beach?
One final question please.
If leaving Rhodes early morning approx what time would arrival in Patmos be please? (Assuming that thereis a ferry leaving Rhodes early morning!)
