Sea canoeing is a wonderful way of exploring Patmos’ stunning coastline. You’ll find isolated coves with crystal-clear green waters and exotic white-sand shores as well as more popular, well-organized beaches. Don’t miss Lambi beach in the north which boasts so many colorful stones you’ll think a treasure-chest full of gems was emptied across the shores and into the water – and in the dark, under the moonlight, the brightly colored rocks sparkle underwater.

As you row along the coastline, visit Koumaro forest near Lambi – one of only three surviving Arbutus forests in Greece. Then make your way to a tiny island across from Grikos Bay where you’ll be able to wander along with herds of wild goats. Equipment can be found at a number of organized beaches. Don’t forget to ask instructors for tips or directions.
