Twenty kilometres away from Samos, we discover Agios Konstantinos, a small village right on the beach, with a pretty little dock and a beach ideal for a wonderful stroll. “Agios”, as it called by the locals, actually consists of two settlements, one near the sea and the other further up (Pano, meaning upper, Agios), in the woods. Go down the coastal road for a walk, visit the taverns for fresh fish, and swim at the small beaches on the left and on the right of the village. Enjoy the houses that are side by side on the beach, visit the church of Agios Konstantinos, as well as the older temple of the saint, with its remarkable chancel screen, walk by the Primary School and head to Platanakia village. This village is also called Aidonia, or Valeontates, and is located on your left (coming from Vathi), after the bridge that crosses the great glen.
From here you can go to Manolates village or to Ambelos and Stavrinides.
