The southwest of the island of Samos is dominated by its highest mountain Kerkris, so from the local beaches you have beautiful views of this magnificent limestone massif. The local center is the town of Votsalakie with a beautiful long beach. You can go on trips to other nearby beaches or climb the famous Pythagorean Cave.
