Marathi is a phenomenal tiny island 12 miles east of Patmos. You can only visit in the summertime, as no accommodation, restaurants etc are available during the winter. Internet connection and decent phone communication are hard.
For those who do not have their own boat, throughout the summer period boats from Patmos organize daily almost daily excursions to the nearby islands and between them and Marathi. The excursionists can experience the tranquility and the beautiful beach, while at the two taverns on the island they will enjoy delicious food with local products
