Patmos Daily Cruises offers summer boat excursions to beaches around the island, including Psili Ammos, and also to nearby islets.


Buses (flat fare €2) connect Skala with Hora seven times daily, and with Grikos and Kambos four times daily, and more frequently in July and August.

Car & Motorcycle

The main seafront street in Skala holds several car- and motorcycle-hire outlets, including T & G Automoto and Avis. Demand often exceeds supply in high season, so book ahead if possible. The best scooter shop, Moto Rent Faros, is behind the harbour on the road to Hora, and has quick, regularly serviced bikes.


You can catch a taxi from Skala’s taxi rank, opposite the police station.
