The white pebbly beach, Antisamos, is the closest and only one kilometre from Sami. Two kilometres away at Karavomilos, is a long sandy beach very popular with families with young children. There are many narrow inlets and small coves which offer a degree of privacy.

Eight kilometres south of Sami are the spectacular Drogarati Caves. Their stalactites and stalagmites are illuminated to great effect. A forty metre tunnel takes you to a cavern which hosts classical concerts during the summer months. It is also worth taking a boat trip to the underground Melissani Lake.
