Agios Konstantinos


Samos has beaches in abundance. Usually in sheltered bays, where the wash of the waves is broken and the water warms up quickly in springtime. The beaches on the north coast are without exception stoney beaches; on the south coast you 'll find some magnificent sandy beaches (near Votsalákia and Psilí Ámmos). To the east of Agios Konstandínos there are three magnificent stoney beaches, Tsamboú, Tsamadoú and Lemonákia. It is possible to rent beach-chairs there, but in early springtime one can use them mostly free of charge. To the west of Karlóvasi you 'll find three beautiful stoney beaches: Potámi, Mikró Seitáni and Megálo Seitáni. The last two can only be reached on foot or by boat. By car it takes three quarters of an hour to get at the other side of the island - to Votsalákia where there are some beautiful beaches. There on the south-side of the island, there are also not so many clouds hanging around the mountain peaks of Ambelos or Kerkis. There is no doubt that stoney beaches have pros and cons: no sand to stick to your body, hair and towels. On the other hand, sand is easier to walk on . However a pair of plastic shoes can really help with that. In spring the sea can still be very chilly but once you've mustered up some courage it can make you feel wonderful !
