Why go to Samos

With a rugged, mountainous interior that descends into pretty pebbled beaches and warm Aegean waves, Samos has all the Greek island charm of days gone by. This peaceful place has somehow stayed relatively off-radar to the tourist hordes, which means a Samos holiday is still an authentic, quiet beach break in the sun.

Taking it easy is the quintessential Samos experience. It’s a sleepy pace of life here and lazy days can be filled by resting on a beach, paddling in the sea and taking coastal strolls along its pristine shoreline. The island’s harbour towns have splashes of a distinctively Greek palette with whites, blues and bougainvillea pinks, and there are plenty of tavernas to find among the winding narrow alleyways.

Indeed, wherever you base yourself, you can expect to enjoy long alfresco lunches backed by spectacular scenery – the island’s fertile landscape produces an endless menu of homegrown ingredients, such as extra virgin olive oil and feta cheese. Seafront tavernas in Samos are hopelessly romantic, serving traditional mezze platters and freshly caught fish – best washed down by a glass of local wine, of course.
