Kokkari

Location


Kokkari is a fishing harbour of Samos Island, which has now developed into a tourist center. Still it preserves its old traditional face, with small houses and lanes full of flowers. Kokkari is on a small peninsula full of houses which climbs up to the top of the hill with a small harbour on one side and a superb pebble beach on the other. Surrounded by green mountains and the view out to the sea, it’s worth a journey. Near Kokkari are several villages like Platanakia, Valeodates, Staurinides as well as many others, which are all connected with streets or small paths. Hiking paths lead all around the island. Find many hidden pebble beaches, like Tsamadou, Tsambou, Lemonakia close to Kokkari.

Sailing conditions

Kokkari is situated on a wide bay and an ideal spot for both windsurfing and learning to windsurf. Sailing on the crystal clear blue waters with a mountainous backdrop will take your breath away. The Meltemi blows side shore from the left here creating great freeride conditions. The local mountainous landscape generates a regular afternoon thermal. A shallow, wind protected area near the centre allows beginners a safe start with the cross on-shore wind. The further out the stronger the wind with increased windchop and sometimes generating ramps up to 2m on the outside.
