From the famous Potami Beach, you can walk along the marked route to the beautiful and deserted Mikro Seitani Beach. The route measures 2.5 km in one direction with a total elevation gain of 150 meters. The route can be shortened by about half if you move by car along a forest road. Beautiful views, a path through an old olive grove and, most importantly, a beautiful beach at the end await you

View of Potami Beach

The tour starts at Potami Beach, where there is also a tourist sign. At its western end is this nice vantage point. In the meantime, we are walking on a decent road

The road leads more than 50 meters above sea level. This is a view of the peninsula that terminates Potami Beach.

Crossroads of tourist routes 1 and 3

After about a kilometer of walking, the relatively good journey ends and everyone has to continue on foot. There is a turn to route number 3 leading to Plaka hill. We continue along the road No. 1 in the direction of Mikro Seitani.

View of the northwest coast of Samos

Finally we leave the road and follow a nice path. In front of us is a view of the beautiful mountainous northwest coast of Samos. We are moving in this direction

Footpath to Mikro Seitani beach

Fortunately, the hiking trail leads most of the time in the shade of the trees. The path seems to have been used for many centuries and has led to the now abandoned olive groves

Descent rocky slope

The most challenging part of the journey is the descent of a rocky slope without the sun. The path descends with many curves and branches several times, but fortunately only one leads down again.

Bending formations

The road finally reaches the sea again. Just before Mikro Seitani Beach, there are many rock formations along the coast
