An island of immaculate beaches, charming restaurants, friendly bars, and lots of activities – Samos is the jewel of the Aegean Sea. With history and culture, this island is vibrant yet relaxed, with a bustling capital and an abundance of interesting places for you to explore.
Samos is famous for its wine, so be sure to visit a winery while you're on the island in order to get a taste of the authentic Samian experience. The island's vineyards have been celebrated since ancient times, so the Samian winemakers have had millennia to perfect their craft. The grapes grown on Samos are of the Muscat variety, and consequently a lot of the wines made on the island are sweet dessert wines, including the famous Samos Nectar and the Samos Vin Doux.
Also on the north coast, Kokkari is a sweet seaside town with plenty of options for places to stay. You'll find high-end hotels with pristine swimming pools, private apartments with perfect beach views, and plenty of options for travellers on a budget who are looking for a luxurious holiday in this relaxed and friendly town.
