The big beach appropriately named The Long beach is situated on the waterfront in Kokkari.Just in front of the most popular tourist resort of Samos.This is a beach where visitors have the opportunity to enjoy the deep blue waters of the Aegean Sea and the natural beauty of the island.
Kokkari beach is covered with white pebbles that reach the shore and in some parts it has sand. It is organized with umbrellas and sundecks and a beach bar offering snacks and cold drinks throughout the day. Kokkari as well as other beaches are ideal for sports like windsurfing, since the area is very windy and creates the perfect conditions for these kind of water sports. There are two smaller and equally nice beaches to the east of Kokkari, they are more sheltered and quieter.
There is a tavern on the hill above the beaches, with a very nice view of the sea. It’s an ideal venue for a long relaxing lunch.
