Overlooked for years, Samos was mainly used as a hub for ferries to other Aegean islands. But given the jaw-dropping beauty of this verdant land, it was only a matter of time before people began to want to explore its treasures. Book holidays to Samos and create unforgettable memories.
In Samos, you can take the weight off your feet, breathe out and enjoy everything that a laidback Greek island holiday has to offer.
Holidays in Samos are ideal for families who enjoy perfect Greek weather, hospitality and quality time by the sea. The beaches here are worthy of a mention in anyone's all-time top 10. The sands at Psili Ammos in the south of Samos, for example, are simply extraordinary and come complete with a healthy sprinkling of jolly tavernas overlooking the sea. Other beaches worth exploring on Samos holidays include the huge swathes of sand at Pythagorion, the island's largest resort, while those with kids will love the safe, shallow seas of the sandy beaches in the south-west of Samos.
In the many tavernas on the island, meanwhile, you'll encounter a mind-boggling array of Greek treats, with meze platters dominating most menus. However, make sure you ask for the specials list as this often won't be displayed and could well be even better than the standard fare. And head to Samos Town for late-night bars serving drinks into the small hours and a handful of vibrant nightclubs.
*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
