In Greece, tourists often head to Mykonos or Santorini, yet overlook the island of Patmos. It's a stunning holiday island in the shape of a seahorse, with just 3,000 locals.

Patmos has attracted several celebs over the years, including Julia Roberts, David Bowie, Richard Gere and Tom Hanks, with the most recent being Pierce Brosnan.

Whitewashed houses line the coast, and the town of Chora is home to tiny restaurants serving local Greek seafood.

The port town Skala has more shops and bars, where the cheapest drink is the local Mythos beer or island-produced wine.

And of course the island has stunning beaches, one of the most well-known being Lampi Beach with its multi-coloured stones, many of them a  soft pink.

One of the island's only sandy beaches, and its most popular, is Petra Beach.

Other popular attractions include the Windmills of Patmos and the Monastery of St John.
