Whitestone houses, blue window shutters, and hot pink bougainvilleas
Yes, with the Instagram friendly village Kokkari in your feed, you’ll make your followers book a trip to Samos faster than they can say ”Opa!” Kokkari is located on the northern part of Samos, and since its much windier here, it’s not optimal if you want a calm day at the beach. But if you enjoy windsurfing, you’re in the right place! On the other hand, who has time for sunbathing, when this picturesque fishing village is photo friendly wherever you go.
If you come here early in the morning, start out by exploring the alleys before the sun is set too high! On top of the village, you get a beautiful view of the churches with their iconic blue domes. Also, don’t forget to keep an eye out for the colorful and Instagram friendly walls.
Find the locals
But when you start to feel your camera shoulder grow numb, it’s time to find your way down to the port. Here, the restaurants will fight to have you as a guest. But take your time and pay attention to where the locals hang out.
Then, while you let your lunch digest, have a look in the ceramic stores. Are you an impulsive shopper like me? Don’t come and say I didn’t warn you….But to your defense: of course, you’ll need that olive serving set and ouzo glasses when you throw a Greek party – a cold winter night back home…..
