Skala Village Patmos: Skala is the largest settlement and the main port of Patmos located right at the centre of the island and 5 km from Chora. The charming settlement is built around the lovely port and constitutes the commercial and trade center of the island.

Some of the sights in Skala are really worth seeing. Among them is the 17th century Church of Agia Paraskevi of Cavos, the ruins of an ancient acropolis, the church of Panagia Koumana and the Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi. The lovely islet of Petrokaravo is right opposite Skala and is only reachable by boat.

    Tiny and quiet Skala
    Skala is the port of Patmos, where the ferries arrive and many fishing boats moor. It is actually a tiny village with many tourist facilities, though. If you come on Patmos after busy islands like Mykonos or Kos, then you will probably be disappointed as it is a truly quiet island. However, if you are looking for some peace in your vacations like we do, then Patmos it is! Skala is a nice place to stay as there are many accommodation options and taverns with great food. For me, Petrokaravo tavern has many delicious local recipes and Art Cafe has the greatest view in Skala. For close beaches, try Agriolivado, Meloi and Hohlakas.
