The island of the nymph Calypso is a destination that is easily accessed from Patmos with ferries departing daily from Skala. One day is enough to get to know the island up close and to rethink your existing image of a tranquil and relaxing holiday.
The quietness and serenity are among the characteristics of the small island that is just 16 square kilometers in size. The beautiful beaches, the freshest fish in the taverns of the harbor and walks on the trails of the island will take up your time here. During a visit you should not miss a trip to the ancient acropolis and the ancient settlement in Kouselio, in ecclesiastical Museum in the modern library "Odysseas Elytis" and to the Virgin of Harou.
You can swim in Liedou and Kampos beaches, located near the port, or if you want to get away from it all, choose the coasts of Kira Basilaina, Hochlakoura, Platis Gialos, Katsadia and Monodendri.
