“This place was the centre of a great culture”. That’s how the Greek poet, J. Ritsos, describes the island of Samos. Its history and its monuments indicate that this is actually the case. Trade had flourished here, while the tobacco and tanning industry had been well known for years.
The location of Samos contributed greatly to its development. It is situated at the Eastern Aegean sea, very close to the coast of Asia Minor, embraced by Ionia and approximately in the middle of the sea-route that links Greece with the East, the Black Sea with Egypt and with the Eastern Mediterranean Sea.
Samos offers a great number of beaches.
Some of the most beautiful beaches on Samos are only accessible on foot and thus ideal if you enjoy walking and spending time alone on a private beach.
