Samiopoula island of Samos: The small island of Samiopoula is close to the southern coast of Samos. Its name means small Samos and can be easily accessed from the ports of Pythagorion and Limanaki by speed or fishing boat. The itineraries are more frequent in summer and the trip from Pythagorion takes about an hour.
There are two beaches on Samiopoula, Psalida beach and Katsakas beach. Psalida is the best one, with nice white sand, crystalline waters and free umbrellas. Its beauty attracts many visitors but it is quiet a small beach, therefore it tends to get crowded in summer. Although it has a tavern, it is advised to take enough water and supplies with you, just in case.
Samiopoula has only five inhabitants! In spite of its small size, Samiopoula has some interesting buildings, such as the small parish churches of Agia Pelagia and the Ascension of Christ. It also has a few small houses as well as a hotel and a limited number of room rentals.
