Samos has many beautiful beaches. Ireon has 2 beaches in the village and outside the village Papas beach. In the south-east you can find the sandy beach Psili Amos. Very popular because you can walk almost 600 meters into the sea. In the South-West of Samos there are also several sandy beaches.
At the coast there are many villages. If you take the time to discover Samos better, you will find many old mountain villages. The latest years some of these almost abandoned villages are brought back to live again. Young people come back and rebuild the old houses.
The flora of Samos is magnificent. The big fire, where nature
was partly destroyed, was already 14 years ago and all plants, flowers
and trees are flourishing like never before. Samos really is The Green Isle
Already more than 10 years Ireon is the center of the Ireon
Festival. Every year 7, 8 and 9 August national and international bands
change Ireon in a rock palace for 3 days.
There is a huge stage near the sea. This event has become very famous
