Arki Island is a quiet Greek island with clear waters, white sandy beaches, hiking trails, and traditional architecture. 

Visitors can enjoy fresh seafood and Greek cuisine in its tavernas, and there are small places to stay. Its most popular destination is Tiganakia Beach, a picturesque sandy beach located 2km southeast of the main port, or a 25 minute walk. 

The island can be explored with a day trip from Patmos as it takes approximately a 40 minute ferry ride to reach. 

This route is available 5 times weekly , as well as the one through Lipsi island which takes around 90 minutes to reach Arki. 

For those feeling adventurous , there is also the option of a day trip ( or longer ) to the beautiful Marathos Islet just across Arki.
