Holidaymakers

Potami Beach is one of the most famous bathing destinations in Samos. At the same time, it is a great starting point for two nice hikes – to the beaches of Mikro Seitani and Megalo Seitani and also to the local waterfalls. The beach itself is easily accessible, as it is located just a short walk from the large town of Karlovassi

Church of Agios Nikolaos

A trip to Potami Beach is best started at the modern Agios Nikolaos Church. From here is the best view of the beach. Ideal early in the morning, when the sun will shine on you and there will be few people on the beach

View back to the road from Karlovassi

From the church you can also see the view back to the road from Karlovassi, from where you came. But that's not the famous view yet

Views of Potami Beach

From the viewpoint you can see the rocks dividing Potami Beach into two semicircular bays. The closer bay is not organized to the more distant are two sections of deck chairs

Rocks between two bays

Potami beach is pebble, but the pebble beach is smaller and the access to the water is good. One of the hallmarks of this beach are the colored rocks in the middle between the bays

Inland views

The beach is surrounded by several hundred meters high peaks, which gives it a very nice backdrop

View back to the church

Looking back you can see the modern building of the church on the cliff. From the perspective, the two bays seemed almost the same size, but it's just an optical illusion. The more distant one is at least 5 times longer

The mouth of the stream

At the beach you will also find the mouth of the stream on which there are famous waterfalls. From the beach it is about a kilometer and a short walk to the waterfalls

Parking by the beach Potami

Definitely worth a trip to Potami Beach in the morning. It fills up very quickly and around noon there is slowly no place to park
