On the southeastern coast, opposite Turkey, pretty Pythagorio – so named after the famed mathematician and philosopher Pythagoros who was born here – has a yacht-lined harbour, and Samos’ main archaeological sites including Heraion and the extraordinary Evpalinos tunnel. All boats departing south from Samos leave from Pythagorio, including day trips to Samiopoula islet. A 1.5km walk west of Pythagorio brings you to a pleasant beach with umbrellas, toilets and decent swimming.
