What to do on Thasos

An island for nature lovers
On Thasos, you will find yourself engulfed in a sea of green, which comes in many shades and moods. Take the tree-lined roads from the beaches to the ravines, lakes, cascades and footpaths around the villages. Rewarding trails like Maries-Prinos, Panagia-Potamia-Ypsario, Kallirahi-Prinos or Hrisi Ammoudia-Limenas can be enjoyed on foot or by mountain bike. For lovers of outdoor sports, Thasos is the ideal summer destination for an adventure-filled holiday.

Arrival at Limenas
This is Thasos’ link to the mainland and its capital since antiquity. Be sure to see the ancient agora; the sanctuaries of Herakles, Dionysos, Artemis and Poseidon; the Acropolis with its incredible view and the 5th century BC theatre – all testament to the island’s long history. To get back to today’s world, walk through the central market and its dozens of shops as well as the small harbour on the beach. At night you’ll have fun choosing your favourite from among dozens of restaurants and bars.

Palataki at Limenaria
Palataki (little palace) is a two-storey rectangular building with a pair of towers, a typical example of eclecticism. Built in the early 1900s to provide office space for Speidel, the German company that was in charge of the island’s mines, it’s considered the most impressive of the administrative buildings in the Aegean and it’s surrounded by one of the most important industrial monuments in the Mediterranean, namely the mine itself. Thasos has been a centre of mining operations since antiquity with rich deposits of mercury, lead, iron, manganese and white marble.

Paradise on Earth
It’s all in the name! The exotic beach that goes by the moniker Paradise is considered one of the finest in the Aegean.

The beaches of Thasos
You will probably run out of stamina before Thasos runs out of beaches: Dasillio Prinou, Skala Prinou, Chrysi Akti, Chrysi Ammoudia, Agios Antonios, Alykes, Trypiti, Skala Potamia, Paralia Limena, Pefkari, Skala Rahoiou, Gkiola, Saliara or Marble beach, as the enamoured foreign tourists call it, all combine the azure of the sea, pale or golden sand and enchantingly verdant backdrops. Topping it off are the tavernas, beach bars and water sports available at some of the most popular beaches.

Thasos has it all; scuba diving and instructors at Pefkari, water skiing at Chrysi Ammoudia, Pefkari and Psili Ammos, windsurfing at Paradise and boat rides to the most isolated beaches from all over. Fun and games in the sea at Skala Prinou, Potos and wind on the island of your dreams.

High-end hospitality
No matter your budget, Thasos will more than satisfy you. Whether you opt for one of the five-star hotels and villas, or just a room or furnished apartment, everything is here for you, from swimming pools and poolside bars with a view of the sea in a well-tended garden, to water massages and high class restaurants..
