Written by in , Comments Off on Visit the Top Beaches on Samos Island

Samos is one of those islands that people flock to each year to capture some of the magic Greece has to offer. Although it doesn’t get as many visitors as some of the more popular islands, the beaches are still filled with locals and tourists alike who can’t get enough of the sunshine. Here’s a look at some of the beaches you won’t want to miss:

Tsamadou Beach

This is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, and it is situated 3km from Kokkari. This bay is lovely and has lush greenery and crystal blue-green water as its surrounding. There is a small path leading from the main road to the beach. On the beach, you will find a few beach cafeterias and excellent taverns. In spite of the waves that affect the beach when it is windy, the place is excellent for relaxing. The beach is organised with umbrellas and sunbeds and consists of soft pebbles. It is also the only nudist beach on the island. The right part of the beach seen when you are climbing down the path is nudist.

Potokaki Beach

This beach is pebbled and long, and it’s situated 14km west of Samos’ capital, Vathy. It is also 3km away from Pythagorio. The beach has won an award of the Blue Flag, and it’s very famous in the summer. In addition to the clean waters, it is popular for offering tourist facilities such as water sports equipment, beach bars, sundecks, and umbrellas. The beach provides various kinds of accommodation where you can stay as you enjoy the beach. Locals frequent the beach as a result of the Great Ionian Sea and the amazing environment. You can easily reach it via public and private means.

Lemonakia Beach

The location of this sheltered bay is 13km North West of Samos’ capital, Vathy. Partly, it is organised with sundecks and umbrellas and a beach bar offering cold drinks and snacks. This beach is well known for its crystal waters and soft sand. Moreover, it lies close to a beautiful green Samos village named Kokkari that attracts numerous tourists. The turquoise waters form an exotic view with high cliffs and vast vegetation surrounding it. The beach is close to Tsamadou, another popular breach. Easily through private or public transport, you can access the beach.

Psili Beach

Psili beach is long and sandy and lies about 11 km of Samos’ capital, Vathy. This beach has a beautiful quality, mainly because it is quiet and hidden away from the main areas. Cliffs form a nice feel of isolation and protect the beach from wind making it a refuge for the naturists. There are numerous umbrellas and sunbeds along the sandy coast. Near the beach, you will see two taverns among the pine trees on the road.

Tsabou Beach

Tsabou bay is around 3 km from Agios Konstantinos beach and 15km northwest of Samos’ capital, Vathy. You will find a junction consisting of a small circular road leading to Tsabou, following the major road to Karlovassi from Vathy, just after Avlakia. Few accommodation facilities line up the beach and some taverns too. This large bay is open and robust winds that affect it at times during summer. The water is spotless, the seabed is deep, and large pebbles are on the shore.
