Potami Beach

Potami beach lies on the verdant and hilly northwestern coast of the Aegean island of Samos. It is a long pebble beach with a distinctive rock formation mid-beach. The water here is a particularly clear blue which contrasts beautifully with the forested hillside behind.

Potami is a place of beauty and is largely unspoilt. A small beach bar provides snacks and cold drinks, and there are the obligatory sun-loungers and umbrellas for hire, but not much else to spoil the natural vista.

Just inland from the beach is the 13th century “Genoan Castle”, a small fortress rising out of the pine trees and overlooking the coast beyond. A little further inland is are a series of pools and waterfalls where an ancient river has snaked its way through the dense forest.
