Top Samos Orchid Sites (4)

Livadaki Beach Track, North-East Coast

A nice drive on the new Vathy by-pass and then along the coast with excellent views of the sea takes you down to a track down to Livadaki beach near Aghia Paraskevi (parking at start of track at 37° 46.740’N, 26° 59.311’E).  Along here there were large numbers of Serapias, Orchis, and Anacamptis, and also some Ophrys:
