Yacht Charters Samos

One Of Greece’s Island Treasures

In the eastern Aegean Sea, Samos stands out as one of Greece’s island treasures, known for its stunning beaches and alluring natural landscape. Samos was the birthplace of the Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras and is home to Pythagoreion and the Heraion of Samos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that includes the Eupalinian aqueduct – an incredible ancient tunnel, a true marvel of ancient engineering.


Samos enjoys a beautiful Mediterranean climate. June to September are the sunseeker months, but May and October also boast inviting temperatures for those who don’t mind a light cool breeze in the evenings. 

For a luxury yacht charter of Kos, we recommend the entire May to October season. If you’re eager to spend your days submerged in the sea, June, July, or August are the months for you. Those who prefer a balance of in-water activities and on-land exploration will be pleased with the climate at any time over the long, five-month summer period.

Activities & Experiences

Small but mighty, there is so much to do on a boat charter to Samos. And they’re all handily within reach, thanks to the compact size of the island and the ultra-convenience of your Samos yacht charter.

No charter of Samos would be complete without paying homage to the great ancient thinkers who helped to shape our modern world.

Pythagoras isn’t the only famous ancient Greek to call this island home. Philosophers Melissus and Epicurus were both born and lived their lives here and astronomer Aristarchus, the first known person to suggest the Earth revolves around the sun, also hailed from this small but remarkable island. Ancient mythology also places Samos as the home of goddess Hera.

Sanctuary of Heraion: Dating back to the 6th century BC, this sanctuary was built in dedication to the goddess Hera and is written in Greek mythology as the place where she and Zeus had their honeymoon.

Vathis is the island’s capital, and it’s worth spending some time there, but there are many other gorgeous seaside villages to explore – many of which you will be near while visiting other sites. Some of the most picturesque are Kokkari, Pythagorion, Karlovassi and Heraion.

While you’re just a mile away from the Turkish coast, why not take your charter of Samos internationally for a day at Kusadasi in Turkey? This resort town boasts many beautiful beaches and fine restaurants. It also offers a unique view of the relationship between these neighbours who have not always been so friendly.

When famous mathematician, Pythagoras, was in hiding from political opponents, he ended up hiding in the now named “Cave of Pythagoras”.

Depending on who you speak to, it could have actually been another cave turned church – Panagia Spiliani. On Mount Kastro, this church is built into the mountainside. Whether caves or churches are of interest, the view certainly will be, peeking out over the sea.
