Samothraki or Samothrace is situated between Lemnos and Thassos and is the tallest Greek island in the Thracian Sea. Saos is the name of the mountain which forms an astounding height of 1,611 meters, originally taken from ancient Greek Samos which means ‘high’. According to mythology, this dramatic mountain was where the god Poseidon watched the Trojan War. If you are ever sailing the North Aegean, Samothraki is a great stop, especially for those who prefer low-key vacations. Before your boat rental trip, you might like to visit the island’s trademark, the Sanctuary of the Great Gods. The archaeological monument is located in the ancient city of Samothraki, Paleopoli. Here you will be energized from the Kavirian mysteries that took place during antiquity, equally important as the Eleusinian ones that are part of the Panhellenic range. The same site features the statue of Nike, daughter of the Titans, and the winged goddess of Victory. Besides being ideal for the archaeology aficionados, Samothraki is also famous for its river stream known as Fonias, forming the island’s tallest waterfall; ideal for swimming in its abundant running waters. Finally, a boat trip in Samothraki is ideal for visitors who want to get the whole picture of the island.
Renting a boat in Samothraki will lead you to interesting beaches on the outskirts of the island. Pachia Ammos which means “a thick layer of sand” is an ideal beach for relaxation, only 15 km from the main port of the island. With a catamaran, motor yacht, or speedboat you can anchor in the tranquil cove of Karkani, close to Pachia Ammos. A second popular beach for vacationers is Vatos which is only accessible by boat. Although there are not a plethora of beaches in Samothraki compared to the rest of the Greek islands, the fascinating landscape formed makes it different in almost every aspect. One can enjoy sailing but also kayaking, trekking, climbing, and mountain biking, thanks to its superb morphology.
A boat rental trip in Samothraki may be combined with a cruise to Thassos and Lemnos. Sailing from Kavala, you can always include these beautiful destinations in your itinerary. Because Samothraki is not connected to the mainland, you can always begin your sailing trip from Lemnos, Kavala, or Thessaloniki. A sailboat is a perfect vessel for a longer adventure by the sea. With a skipper, you can have the comfort of exploring Halkidiki, Thessaloniki, and even the Sporades islands. The majestic islands of Alonissos, Skiathos, and Skopelos stretch out into the Aegean Sea and form an archipelago that is beyond doubt one of the best sailing destinations in the world. Finally, Samothraki may be a remote Greek island often overlooked as a yachting destination but is definitely a wonderful stop to have the perfect vacation.
