The “Tortuga” Beach Bar, which is located in Kambos Marathokambou, is impressive and glamorous and makes the difference in day and night fun! In fact, “Tortuga” is regarded as the “crown-jewel” of the wider Kambos Marathokambou area!
Kampos Marathokambou is one of the most beautiful and most developed tourist areas of Samos. Especially during the summer months is a place full of life, motion, fun, and relaxation!
All the beaches, from Ormos Marathakombou to Limnionas are beautiful, clean, and full by visitors (local and foreigners). The main road that crosses Kambos Marathokambou is noisy and full of life. The traditional and elegant shops, bars, coffee-shops, taverns etc. add colour and “invite” everybody to join the place for nice food, cold drinks, refreshments, shopping or just… fun!
The “Tortuga” Beach Bar made a great impression on us and we think is worth mentioning it in detail. The beach bar is located in the city-center of Kambos Marathokambou, and since its opening the tourist industry of the area has been significantly upgraded.
Recently we had the pleasure to visit “Tortuga” and when we left we were quite impressed with its facilities, its friendly atmosphere, and the friendly behavior of its highly trained and professional staff. “Tortuga” wins admiration from the very first moment. From the entrance up to the edge of the sea, that surrounds it, the bar produces a pleasant “aura” which is a by-product of its elegant construction and decoration. Versatile and suitable for any hour of the day or night, “Tortuga” is a place for coffee, swimming or refreshments. One think is for sure: You’ll never get tired in “Tortuga”, no matter how many hours you stay!
You can relax in a sunbed, under an umbrella, swim in the cool and clear waters of the sea, and enjoy or play sports like beach volley.
Frequently the well-organized volleyball court host tournaments which attract many people, thus giving the impression that you are in a cosmopolitan Cycladic Island like Mykonos or Santorin! Music’s volume is gradually increased as the night comes and turns “Tortuga” into an evening outdoor club. The service is excellent!
Note that sunset comes “earlier” in Kambos Marathokambou, than in other parts of Samos, because the sun suddenly sets behind the imposing Kerkis Mountain (1.440 meters high). Despite the fact that Kerkis Mountain is high enough for a small island like Samos, it blends perfectly with the surrounding landscape.
As said before, “Tortuga” is considered the “crown-jewel” of Kambos Marathokambou and has established itself as a place of reference for the teenagers… and more! To this contributes the professionalism and the passion of the business owners who try to keep “Tortuga” constantly up-to-date regardless the fact that is a newly established business. We strongly recommend a visit to “Tortuga”!
