About Samos Island
Do you love nature and travelling to unknown places? Then the Greek island of Samos in the East Aegean Sea is a sure candidate for your “must visit” list. The pureness of Samos will bring you an awing experience you’ll never forget!
Samos has been blessed with unique natural features. Its magnificent high rising mountains, the myriad species of wildflowers and wonderful pebbled beaches in hidden coves are only a few on the list! The image that remains on your mind is one of endless vineyards, olive tree coves, picturesque villages and crystal blue water.
Samos was famed to be one of the richest islands in history. Despite the fact that it’s one of the most beautiful Greek islands, Samos remains unknown to the large majority of travellers. Therefore, mass tourism hasn’t had an effect on the natural beauty of the place or its inhabitants and visitors can still enjoy this wild gem in its purest form.
