KAKOPERATO CANYON NEAR KOSMADEI ON SAMOS

If you drive up the hills, from Meseo Karlovasi through Lekka, ca. 2 km later you turn right for Kosmadei. The next ca. 6 km offer a great trip up in the mountains, through old green woods and along some newer chapels. Kosmadei is a village, that impresses with great views & walks, 600 meters above the sea. From here you can reach the Kakoperato Canyon Cave in ca. 90 minutes. A great trip through nature, all around the Samosian mountains. Definitely no Barefoot- or Flip-Flop-Area!

I had my camera fixed on my forehead, and the result was a lot of hectic moves. But that was part of the game.

If you land in Kosmadei someday, don’t miss to visit the unique tavern at the parking spot. Because this old lady’s living room bar restaurant taverna is a real institution in this village – to me.

HIPPY’S BEACH BAR POTAMI KARLOVASI

A real chillin‘ location, right on the beach: Hippy’s in the Potami area, close to Karlovasi, on greek island Samos offers great food at Hippy’s restaurant, or you can spend your time right around the corner at the bar or on the beach beds of the club area. Friendly people, funny cats, shady places at noon – I love it!

The shady waterfall area begins 5 minutes walk from here, if you prefer getting grilled you can also start a 90 minutes trip to famous Megalo Seitani beach around noon, and from there in another hard’n’heavy 90 minutes 550 meters up the hill to Drakei: Far out, in the west of this beautiful island, and after a breathtaking trip along the rough coastline of Samos, you will find a  greek village with own character and very friendly people. Enjoy the best food in Drakei at the authentic greek Omonia Tavern of Eleftheria and John Agelinas, right in front of the church. Think about daylight, if you start your way back.
