Lovely views across the sea, all access to the boats etc. There is a nice but stoney beach to the north which is nice to spend the day.

We spent a week in Sami and there were so many nice bars and restaurants that it was hard to choose! Karnaggio was our personal favourite, and the cocktails at Aqua Marina were super!

The port of Sami is beautiful, the are many fabulous yachts here & lots of fishing boats. Sami was the location of the film Captain Corelli's Mandolin starring Nicholas Cage. We took the ferry from here to Ithaka which was only a 30 minute journey....More
