Located in the eastern Aegan Sea, Samos is a small and charming Greek island highly recommended for car hire. This "very Greek" travel location is recognized for its production of the delicious Muscat wine and being the birthplace of mathematician Pythagoras, who the Samos town Pythagoreion and the widely taught Pythagorean theorem was named after. With rolling green mountains, beautiful coastlines, and plenty of restaurants and shops to enjoy, you'll want to see the entire island.
You can begin your tour at Livadaki Beach, viewed as the best beach on the island with free sunbeds, limited tourists, and a bar right on the sand. This exotic oasis is a must-visit for Samos travelers and worth the bumpy drive. Afterward, visit the town of Samos; it is a small village with character with a cosmopolitan flare. Take a walk from the ocean to the town center where locals love to mingle with the tourists. Drive about 15 minutes along the coast to Kokkari, another quaint town where many people come for the sparkling turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. Take a swim in the ocean, snooze on one of the quiet beaches, or enjoy a glass of vino while soaking in the colorful view.
Karlovasi is another short drive as you continue alongside the coast of Samos. Here you'll want to put on some comfortable (and if possible, waterproof) shoes and adventure to the Patomi Waterfalls, about a 20 minute walk from the sea. You can follow the river from the beach to discover the first of three breathtaking waterfalls. Wear a swimsuit and minimal to no baggage as you may be inclined to wade through some water. Along this nature walk, you'll see bountiful fauna and an ancient church. Also while you're in Karlovasi, you can hike through some greenery to Mikro Seitani, an idyllic and secluded beach with no commercialization.
From Karlovasi, you can actually cut through the island or continue along the coast. Either way, make sure you drive onto Pythagoreio. Right before arriving to town, you'll be able to stop at the underground tunnels of Eupalinos, built in 6th century BC. In town, the most popular attraction is hiking up to the Monastery of Panagia Spiliani, a historical chapel within a cave where you can escape the heat and snap a great view shot. To receive the most of the monastery, opt to have a tour guide take you and tell of its rich past. Other historical locations in Pythagoreio include the Castle of Lykourgos Logothetis, the Temple of Hara, and the Pythagoras Statue. After a day of Greek culture, you have many bars and restaurants to choose from, including Corner Bar and Gregory's Bar which both boast a view of the ocean. If choose to stay a night here, look into scuba diving, a day at the spa, or a private yacht tour is you're feeling fancy.
Overall, Samos is a surprisingly charismatic island with picturesque ocean views and rich Greek culture to satisfy any tourist with an adventurous spirit.
