Kamariotissa is the main harbor for the island. It provides good all around shelter but a strong SW wind brings in an uncomfortable swell.It is best to go side-to the mole and drop an anchor to keep the boat some distance from the concrete. The ferry boats and large trawlers can make some uncomfortable wakes.
Samothraki is the home of the Sanctuary of the Great Gods, site of important Hellenic and pre-Hellenic religious ceremonies. Considerable remains still exist of the ancient walls, which were built in massive Cyclopean style, as well as of the Sanctuary of the Great Gods, where mysterious rites took place in ancient time.
