Balos is a 400 meters long beach with big pebbles, situated at a distance of some 40 kilometers southwestern to the town of Samos. The beach is found at the southwestern coast of the island, within the bay of Marathokambos, close to the well known beach of Psili Ammos; it is well protected from the winds and the sea is very clean and deep. Several alternatives for accommodation are available in the area around and the seafront tavern at the beach will offer to you full meals and refreshments before or after swimming. The beach is not organized at all, but it is ideal for a relaxing swim in calmness, far away from the capital town of Samos. Access to the beach from the town of Samos is easy by private means (car and motorbikes) via the settlement of Koumaeika.

Port

Marathokambos is a small harbor on the SW side of Samos, lying 15 miles west of Pythagorion and around 14 miles NE of the Fournoi Islands. In settled weather it is a delightful anchorage with water clear enough to swim off your boat with several taverns ashore.

The tiny beach just beside the small port of the tourist settlement Ormos Marathokambou is situated at a distance of some 45 kilometers southwestern to the town of Samos. The sea is of medium depth and very clean and, as it is found at the southwestern coast of the island, within the bay of Marathokambos, it is well protected from the winds.

Perri Beach consists of a small pebbled beach and a couple of houses, southwest of Skoureika and Pirgos in the Marathokampos Bay. You can reach it over a (partly) dirt track from an exit just before the village of Balos or via the village Koumeika.
