Sea Sports

1. Windsurfing

Kokkari Beach, on the northern coast of Samos, is a windsurfer’s paradise. Renowned for its consistent and favorable winds, particularly during the summer months, this spot attracts enthusiasts from around the globe. The crystal-clear waters and the stunning backdrop of lush green mountains make windsurfing here not just a sport but a truly immersive nature experience. There is a windsurfing school at the beach providing lessons and equipment, ensuring a safe and enjoyable adventure for everyone.
For beginners we recommend the surf school at Mykali Beach in the southeast. With less waves and less string winds than Kokkari, this is the ideal place to get on the board for the first time, or after a longer absence.

2. Scuba Diving in Kokkari

The village of Kokkari is not just a treat for surfers but also a hub for scuba diving enthusiasts. The underwater world here is a mosaic of marine life, ancient ruins, and fascinating shipwrecks. The Samos Sub Dive center in the village offers diving courses for all levels, providing a chance to explore the rich biodiversity of the Aegean Sea. The experience of swimming alongside colorful fish, octopuses, and possibly encountering amphorae fragments from ancient shipwrecks is unparalleled, making it a must-do for underwater adventurers.

3. Kayaking Along the Coastline

Samos’ diverse coastline, with its hidden coves and secluded beaches, is perfect for exploring by kayak. This eco-friendly sport offers a serene yet invigorating way to experience the island’s natural beauty. Paddle along the rocky shores, navigate through sea caves, or simply float and admire the panoramic views of the Aegean. Kayaking tours are available, ranging from a few hours to full-day excursions, and are suitable for all ages and skill levels, making it a great family activity.

4. Kitesurfing in Kedros

For those seeking an adrenaline rush, kitesurfing at Kedros beach offers an exhilarating experience. The beach’s wide expanse and reliable wind conditions create an ideal environment for kitesurfing. Beginners can find schools offering instruction and equipment rentals, while experienced kitesurfers can enjoy the freedom of riding the Aegean waves. The thrill of gliding over the water with the wind as your guide is an unforgettable experience, promising both excitement and fun.
You find Kedros right in the middle between Samos town and Kokkari on the north coast

5. Sailing around Samos Island

Samos, with its gentle breezes and scenic bays, is perfect for sailing enthusiasts. Charter a yacht or join a sailing tour to navigate the tranquil waters of the Aegean. This sport offers a unique perspective of the island, allowing you to discover secluded beaches, traditional fishing villages, and perhaps even spot dolphins along the way. Whether you’re an experienced sailor or a first-timer, sailing around Samos provides a blend of relaxation, adventure, and the opportunity to connect with the sea in its purest form.
