The resort of Kokkari is located only about 10 kilometers west of the capital Samos. For most visitors, it is the most picturesque resort on the island. An interesting bay topped by a rock, lined with taverns gives it a really nice atmosphere

Church of Agios Nikolaos in Kokkari

The ideal starting point for a tour of Kokkari is a short walk from the church of Agios Nikolaos, as it has the largest and best available car park in the city.

Sitting right by the sea

Super romantic is sitting right by the sea. Here, however, it is ideal only after sunset and not during the day in the heat of the sun

Walk to the rock

It is definitely worth walking to the very northwestern end of the city, from where you can continue to the pier with a great view of both Kokkari and the mountains behind it.
