On the west coast of Samos sits the beautiful beach at Varsamo. Here the pebble-sand is black as coal, and the waters as clear as Tiffany crystal. To get here, take the Marathokampos – Kallithea road, and then, after taking a slight detour to the left, you will cross another road, unpaved, for another 3 km until you reach the shoreline.
Once at Varsamo, take a moment to fully grasp the spectacular view of the wide-open Aegean, and the churning waters from the northerly winds. Here you won’t find any complimentary lounge chairs or umbrellas or any amenities or travel services; for these, you’ll have to visit the nearest village of Kallithea. However, there is a lone tavern on the beach that offers delicious fresh seafood dishes.
