Holidays to Samos, Greece

Overview

Samos is set apart from the other Greek islands both by its geographical location and its timeless charm. Located just off the coast of Turkey, Samos enjoys a year-round warm climate and remains unspoilt by tourism. Holidays to Samos are centred on low-key resorts and relaxing, white sand beaches, a million miles away from the high energy resorts the world has come to associate with Greek island getaways.

Things to Do

Samos’ allure lies in its unspoilt beaches, beautiful landscapes and age-old history; one of the top tourist attractions is the Temple of Hera, built in honour of a Greek goddess. If you fancy a slice of adventure, Samos is perfect for hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing! You can get involved with the great outdoors of Samos on guided tours provided by companies around the island – there really is no better to way to explore!

Food and Drink

Samos’ cuisine features a lot of seafood dishes and the locals take pride in their unique recipes for Dorado fish and Goatfish. The island is also responsible for the original recipe for Moussaka, a vegetable dish made with eggplant, of which Samos has over 100 variations! If the local fare doesn’t tantalise your taste buds, there are a wide variety of restaurants in the more touristy resorts offering everything from Asian cooking to Italian pizzerias.
