Arkoi islands are found near the mesmerizing island of Patmos in the Aegean Sea. They are part of a complex of islands, untouched by mass tourism and offering amazing opportunities for endless moments of relaxation and invigoration. And despite their small size, Arkoi beaches rank among the finest in the entire country and this is something not to take lightly!
Perhaps the most popular beach of Arkoi is Tiganakia. It is located in a small bay, featuring turquoise waters and a gorgeous blend of sand and pebbles. In order to get there, you must follow the path that starts at the settlement. The trail takes around 45 minutes, but the scenery will definitely compensate you, as it is purely magical and you will never want to leave!
Arkoi beaches also feature Limnari. This is another beach where you head on foot. In fact, you will see that all the places on the island are reached on foot, as everything is within reasonable distance and there are no vehicles. But this adds to the special charm of Arkoi. Limnari is another destination for absolute relaxation and invigoration, delving in nature and providing the ultimate watery retreat on the island.
Other beaches of great interest include Patelia and Piso Ptelia, as well as Kapsaliasmenos. Wherever you go, remember that there are no modern facilities for you to enjoy there. It is just you and nature. This means that you will most likely need to bring your own water and food, coffee and snacks. And apart from that, you will need an umbrella and beach towels to lay on. Of course, some parts feature tamarisk trees that offer their shade. But if you want to be on the safe side, you should come prepared…along with your sunscreen and glasses, hat and your best mood!
