Samothraki (Island)

Samothraki

Samothraki

Welcome to Samothraki!

This northeastern Aegean Island, also referred to as Samothrace, forms a triangle with Thassos to the northwest and Limnos (Lemnos) to the southwest. It lies 29 nautical miles southwest of Alexandroupolis, the largest city of Northeastern Greece and the closest to Turkey.

It’s a plump, nearly oval island of 178 square kilometers, and with 58 kilometers of fairly rocky coastline. In fact, the entire island displays a raw and wild beauty, with the highest mountain in the Aegean at 1611 meters and sheer drops into lushly green gorges, creating waterfalls and natural pools. Much of the southern portion of the island is inhospitable though outstanding for its natural beauty. The southern coast is reached by caique, an excellent way to see some of the rugged beauty of the island.

Its nearly 3,000 inhabitants concern themselves primarily with farming, fishing, and tourism.

On Samothraki you will find nature at its best, with outstanding landscapes and marvelous walks, hot springs at Loutra on the northeast coast, and wonderful archaeological sites, the most important of which is the Sanctuary of the Great Gods. It is from this site that the statue of Nike, known as the Winged Victory, was discovered, removed, and installed in the Louvre in 1863.

The main port of the island is called Kamariotissa and is located on the northwest coast of the island. It has an adequate tourist infrastructure, a bus station, and is the base for the caiques to the southern coast, the sand beach of Pachia Ammos, and the waterfall at Kremasto Nero (Hanging Water), also in the south.

The main town, Chora, is six kilometers inland from the port, and has a lovely, quiet, and picturesque atmosphere... Continue
