We stayed in Samos (Vathi) as a jumping-off point to Kusadasi/Ephesus, Turkey. Samos doesn't have much for beaches, but Gagou Beach is about the best you'll get within reasonable walking distance of Samos (15 minutes' walk). The Gagou Beach Hotel had wonderful views of the bay from every room. The hidden attraction, which you don't get from the promotional material, is that the food is great. The room comes with breakfast and an evening meal, which is served at 7:30 on the verandah overlooking the bay. We were there three nights and the food was various, plentiful and well-prepared.
You can get a day at the beach just below the hotel, although it's a pebble beach at best. The stretch of beach farthest from the hotel (maybe 100 yards away) is the best stretch of pebbles; the beach closest to the hotel is composed of stones about the size of your fist, and walking on them is wobbly at best.
The rooms themselves are modest, but all have a view and a porch with table and chairs. This is a good choice if you have a few days in Samos and want some beach time in addition to visiting Ephesus
