Although Samos is a family island, it also offers few chances for active holidays. Organized things to do in Samos include diving and windsurfing. Few diving centers have opened in Samos over the last years and offer diving trips to close reefs, old shipwrecks, and uninhabited islands.
The northern coasts of Samos island are also great for windsurfing, particularly the beaches of Kokkari and Tsamadou. Some windsurfing centers have even opened and rent equipment. The countryside of Samos is also great for hiking, as old footpaths lead to vineyard groves, old monasteries, waterfalls, mountainous villages, and caves. Climbing can also be practiced there.
