Karlovassi, which can also be spelled Karlovasi, is the second largest community on the Greek island of Samos, the southernmost island in the Aegean Sea and situated within swimming distance of nearby Turkey. The largest community on the island, also named Samos, is only a 30km drive by car hire in Karlovassi.
The car rental desk at the Samaina Inn Hotel Samos is the easiest place to find cheap car hire in Karlovassi, but renting a vehicle at Samos International Airport Aristarchos or the Samos Auto Centre before driving to Karlovassi is another option.
The community of Karlovassi is actually divided into three smaller villages named New Karlovassi, Middle Karlovassi, and Old Karlovassi. Old Karlovassi is situated behind the port on a forested hill and filled with small traditional Greek homes. This part of town also offers a wonderful view from the Chapel of the Holy Trinity.
New Karlovassi, just a short drive by car rental in Karlovassi, is the location of most of Karlovassi's shops and other modern attractions. One of Karlovassi's most popular attractions is its small beach.
Although the beach sand may be too pebbly for comfortable sunbathing, the waters are clear and blue, and the olive groves and dark green hills of the surrounding area provide spectacular scenery. Just behind the beach lie several small tavernas and restaurants, as well as the vibrant nightlife provided by the University of the Aegean student population.
