active activities in Marmaris, Myrina (Lemnos), and Patmos?

Jump to last reply

Hello my friendly Fodorites -

Our extended family (ages 30s-60s) is doing a land+cruise trip to Greece and Turkey in late June/early July. I have been lurking in the Greece and Turkey forums, gleaning great info on some of the places we plan to visit (Athens, Milos, Mykonos, Ephesus, Cappadocia, Istanbul). However, I'm not finding much information about 3 of our stops: Marmaris, Turkey; Myrina, Lemnos (Limnos); and Patmos (other than the monastery) All 3 of these are stops on our cruise, so we only have daylight hours there (in port 8-6, so roughly 9-5 on land). (I am actively searching cruisecritic too, but there is a general skew toward older/more sedentary travelers, so not much interest in active pursuits).

As you can see from the other places we're visiting, we'll have ample opportunities for beaches, ruins, churches, mosques, city life and village life. We'd really like to find some kind of 'active' activity in Marmaris, Myrina, and Patmos, like hiking, snorkeling, biking, kayaking. Does anyone have recommendations on a good hiking/biking/kayaking/snorkeling tour guide (or map), or other ideas for these places?

Thanks so much for your help already!
