Samos Heraion beach
Heraion beach Samos: Heraion is a quaint fishing settlement that was named after the temple of Hera which lies at a close distance to the port. Heraion is located 17km south west of Vathy, the capital of Samos. It has clean waters and it is protected from from strong winds because of the close bay of Pythagorio.
The area around the bay is quite developed with many fishing taverns and cafeterias, located next to the shore. Visitors will also find some small hotels and rooms.
Heraion is an area of special archeological interest but it retains its authentic character despite the tourist crowds. The beach is well-organized providing a water sports center with training lessons for all ages. Pythagorio is the closest location to Heraion.
