kokkari village view II
The village Kokkari is a bathing and major tourist resort in the north of the island Samos, not far from the capital Vathi or Samos city. Here are also quite some hotels in a pleasant environment. People who have been there speak generally positive about this village. The village has a long and pleasant pebblebeach and many restaurants, super markets and tourist shops. Because the village lies on the north side of the island there is however often some wind, and for this reason it is also popular with the windsurfers. On the beach of Kokkari there are quite a few number of taverna's and also a couple of internet cafes. In the neighbourhood of Kokkari there are several other (but smaller) beaches. In Kokkari there is everything that a tourist could want including car rentals and banks. The church in kokkari is large and interesting.

Samos, Kokkari
Kokkari has just over 1000 inhabitants and it is the main tourist resort in the north of the island of Samos. It is slightly more quiet than in for instance Pythagorion. Not far and within walking distance of the long pebble beach of the village there are some other nice beaches, including Lemonakia Beach and Tsamadou (part naturist beach). In the vicinity of the village are several hiking trails through nature that will lead you to nearby mountain villages. The accommodations in Kokkari consist mostly of pensions and small hotels and apartment complexes. Kokkari has many cafes and restaurants around the bay along the beach and also in the street behind the beach you can find something to eat or buy your souvenirs. Here are also a couple of small supermarkets and a couple of jewelry shops
