Pefkos (the word means pine tree in Greek) is a 200 meters long beach with big pebbles, situated at a distance of some 37 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 sea is rather deep and very clean. Accommodation facilities are available in the area around and the seafront tavern at the beach offers full meals and refreshments before or after swimming. Pefkos is not an organized beach and it is nice 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 Pyrgos.
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.
