The beaches are the main attraction on Samos island, but take time to stroll through its capital, Vathi. The architecture consists of Neo-classical buildings and mansions and the Archaelogical museum is worth a visit. You'll find statues from the Temple of Hera and much more! Head up the hill to check out how the locals live. The unique homes are located in winding alley ways and you'll come across several squares with fountains to rest and take it all in!
Kokkari beach is one of the most popular to visit, but the locals love Nisi beach (closest to nearby Turkey) and if you're in the Norhern region of the Island, head to Potami beach! Up for a hike? Walk 30 minutes from Potami up a path that leads you to Seitani beach. Watch out for seals here!
For the fellow foodies, Eva recommends several spots for some great grub! Her favorite restaurant is Meltemi where you'll eat Shrimp in Ouzo (the national drink) in a tomato sauce with herbs and feta. You'll also have a great view of the sunset at this restaurant! (See below!)
