Beaches around Samos

Mourtia Beach

A slightly secluded idyllic beach, (sand/pebble) which is about 20 minutes by car from the main town of Vathi, “Samos town”.
On the mountain 400 m higher just north of the beach, you can glimpse the beautifully situated Zoodohos Pigi monastery.

Plaka Beach

A completely secluded sandy beach that can only be reached by boat or by four-wheel drive car, motorbike or of course by walking to the place.

You turn off the beautiful road towards Drakei down into the valley towards the beach which is visible far down from the road with the majestic Oros Kerkis in the background, but now from the other side compared to Ormos.

The journey from the Pantheon takes about 40 minutes as you have to drive slowly on the way down to the beach.

Tsamadou Beach

A very beautiful, well-visited pebble beach located two kilometers east of Kokkari, about 50 minutes by car from Pantheon Apartments & Studios. The beach has “full-service” in terms of restaurant, bar, sun-loungers, parasols and music.

Potami Beach

A pebble beach located on the north side of the island, about 2 km east of Karlovasi and about 30 minutes from the Pantheon.

The beach has access to restaurants, bar, sun-loungers and parasols. If you want to do something other than swim for a while, you can easily go up the beautiful valley towards Potami Waterfalls.

Megalo Seitani Beach

The sandy beach is reached by either walking about 1,5 hours from Drakei or walking about as long from just south of Potami, via Mikro Seitani Beach.

The route to walk is only about 4 km, but fall height and the paths of the path mean that it takes some time to both get down and back. The hike itself to the beach is a goal in itself, with fantastic views of the sea and the mountains.

At one end of the beach there are some inhabited holiday homes that are only reached from the seas, otherwise the beach is completely untouched without any service.

The journey along the road to Drakei, about 40 minutes from “Ormos”, is also an unforgettable journey, mountain formations, rock walls and outlook on the sea.

Mikro Seitani Beach

This little beautiful Pebble Beach, 50 meters wide, which forms the end of a less rocky valley is reached by walking about 30 minutes from just south of Potomi Beach.

You walk through a fantastic coastal landscape to finally arrive at the beach.

Car or motorcycle to Potami takes about 40 minutes, via Karlovasi.

Pappa Beach

Rocky and pebble beach just west of Ireon and not far from the airport.

Restaurants, sunbeds and parasolls available at the nice rocky beach.
