Protect it from fires

Samos was actually our last minute choice as we couldn't find ferry tickets to Ikaria. However, we don't regret it because we indeed had a great time! Beaches were wonderful and very clean. Lemonakia and Tsamadou were crowded but you can still find excellent quiet beaches on the northern side. We had the best meals in Kokkari in a tavern by the water. I suggest you stay in Pythagorion or Heraion which are less developped and prices are better.
Samos is surprisingly green and you will discover many hidden secrets if you rent a car for a couple of days to explore it. You run by chance onto a sign leading to the Cave of Pythagoras and it was a special experience to trek the narrow path up to the cave and enjoy the view from there. There are no castles or museums on Samos, the top is the beaches and the green nature. Walking in the forests is much pleasurable in the middle of a hot summer. Protect Samos from fires because it would be a really pity to destroy such a beautiful island.
