Sublime Samos holidays 2021

The sun-soaked Greek island of Samos lies just off the coast of Turkey in the clear blue Aegean Sea. One of the quieter of the Greek islands, it offers relaxed low-rise resorts, beautiful sandy beaches and unspoilt natural beauty. You’ll find some lively nightlife in the bustling capital city of Vathy, but also many small villages where the traditional way of life has been preserved. Samos is also a great destination for history lovers, with famous names from Hera to Pythagoras hailing from these shores. There are some fascinating archaeological sites to discover, from tunnels to temples, while active holidaymakers will love the hiking trails on offer. Throw in some delicious Greek food, a glass (or five) of the local sweet Muscat wine and breath-taking views of mountains, orchards and sprawling golden. Could you get any closer to holiday bliss?

If you manage to pry yourself away from the beautiful beaches, Samos has plenty of other things to see and do. The historic town of Pythagorion is where many of the island’s important historical landmarks are. Visit the ruins of the ancient temple of the Greek God, Hera, admire the breathtaking Castle of Lykougos Logothetis, and take a moment to remember the man who brought us everyone’s favourite theorem from their schooldays at the Pythagoras monument. The serene Monastery of Panagia Spiliani is also well worth a visit and a lovely place to enjoy a moment of peace and light a candle.

Samos’ inland areas are equally as scenic as it’s beaches. Visit the tumbling Potami waterfalls, work off lunch with a cycle along the trails near Mount Ampelos and discover the rocky caves at Votsalakia. Back on the beach, you can find plenty of boat trips to experience the island from another perspective and partake in some diving.

Culture vultures have some interesting museums and galleries to explore on Samos. Many are, of course, focused on the rich archaeology of this ancient island, but you can also visit the Samos Wine Museum, the Karlovasi Tannery Museum, and the popular Kallisti Gallery.

Beaches

Beaches

Samos is home to some of the most gorgeous beaches in the Aegean, with plenty of to choose from whether you like things lively and sandy or peaceful and pebbly. The large beaches of Kokkari and Pythagorion are wide and clean with lots of beachfront cafés and bars on offer along with sun loungers, umbrellas, and watersports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing. The beautiful beach at Tsamadou is one of the most scenic on the island – and the place to go for an all-over tan on the island’s only official nudist area!

Psili Amos is a perfect beach for small children with plenty of shallow water for little ones to splash around in, as well as being well serviced by tavernas and sunloungers for mum and dad.

On the quieter side, the small beach of Posidonio is a secluded and tranquil cove with fragrant pine trees to provide some shade, calm waters, and a couple of tavernas serving fresh seafood and local dishes. Alternatively, head to the small beach of Mykali which is perfect for relaxing and sunbathing whilst you take in the stunning views of the Turkish coast across the sky-blue ocean.
