I saw this beautiul cove and beach from the road on the way to the North-East tip of Patmos.
I was sure it must be inaccessible, as the slopes and cliff sides leading down here looked a bit too dangerous to attempt.
However I then spotted a small gate in the metal fencing by the roadside and stopped to take a look, and there was even a strip of wood with the handpainted lettering 'LEMONOU DOOR' still visible in faded yellow paint.
I decided that I would return and attempt the climb, but that the 'flip-flops' currently on my feet woud definitely not be up to the job.
Back in Skala I was tipped off that the best place to get some good footwear would the 'Sports CAVE' just off the square - so it was that just a short while later I was kitted out in a snug pair of Nike's!
Shoes you could never lose!
The footwear was up to the job, and I made the climb down to enjoy the reward of having this beautiful beach all to myself.
