Sami, the second largest port of the island, is a wonderful place to sit and sip a cool drink and watch life go by at its long harbour. An ideal stopping point whether travelling north or south. It has a castle and church , not easily visible from below which is high above the town. There is a signpost which suggests it is a short walk- be warned , it is a long way up the mountain if you are walking, but is well worth a visit.
In the area of the village of Sami, there are interesting geological phenomena, like the Cave of Drongorati, with stalagmites, and the cave of Melissani, with a subterranean lake.Why not visit the Katabothres, here, springs of sea water come out from the earth. The coast beyond Sami is full of lovely little coves- go early and grab yourself an ideal swim and snorkelling spot.
