In the very south of Thassos, Psili Ammos is a soft sandy beach bookended by flat tables of rock. At just over 100 metres the beach isn’t large, and does get crowded in July and August. This will be fine if you prefer things to be lively, and the beach bar plays up-tempo music throughout […]READ MORE
Both a resort and the largest beach on the island, Golden Beach on the east coast is a sandy bay framed by spellbinding natural scenery. The beach is three kilometres long and is fringed by a low-impact holiday community, which doesn’t spoil the views of the verdant hills close by, and the spectacular escarpment a […]READ MORE
Nor far from the southern village of Astris is a small, circular lagoon that has been known from the rock by the sea. Giola isn’t easy to get to, as you have to drive a dirt road for a couple of kilometres from Astris and then walk, but it’s a place that merits a bit […]READ MORE
On a quiet stretch of the east coast, Paradise Beach is a wide strip of sand under pine-decked slopes. Sitting on the beach you can make out the conical silhouette of the small Nisida Kinira island a few hundred metres to the northeast. Despite being 22 kilometres from Limenas, Paradise Beach is a hit with […]READ MORE
This small upland village is in a hollow between sparsely vegetated hillsides and has been listed as a “traditional settlement”. You wouldn’t know to look at Theologos today, but for hundreds of years during the Ottoman period this was the administrative centre of the island. Being a traditional settlement has helped preserve the village’s Macedonian-style […]READ MORE

On a rocky peninsula in the southeast of the island you can examine one of the sources of this prized […]READ MORE
Also in Panagia is a small museum where you can delve into one of the island’s oldest industries. Beautiful, gnarled old olive trees sprout on all corners of Thassos, and before olive oil production was modernised in the 20th century there used to be an olive mill in every village. At this museum you can […]READ MORE
A few kilometres in from Golden Beach on the northeast coast, Panagia is a sweet mountain village with typical houses that have schist roof tiles and wooden balconies and verandas. Tightly packed onto steep ground 300 metres above sea level, Panagia was built away from the coast as a safe haven from pirate attacks and […]READ MORE
The largest monastery on Thassos is a cliff-top convent on the southeast coast. There has been a religious presence here since the 12th century when a hermit constructed a small church, supposedly at the command of the Archangel Michael, the patron saint of Thassos. The monastery was founded a century later but was abandoned during […]READ MORE
