Thassos is an evergreen island of North Aegean, impressing visitors with its unspoiled landscapes and authentic laid back atmosphere. If you are looking for the finest Thassos beaches, below you will find some of the best options on the island. They should be enough to fuel your wanderlust, as Thassos (or else Thasos) is world renowned as a summer retreat of genuine natural beauty and unpretentious aesthetics.
First of all, Paradise Beach is exactly what it promises to be. One of the best swimming places in the entire island, within relatively short distance from Limenas. It boasts fine silky sand and turquoise waters, family friendly and with great modern facilities. The mountainous terrain blends most wonderfully with the lush greenery that almost reaches the shore. Golden Beach is even closer to the port and features equally breathtaking scenery, with Mount Ypsarion standing tall and overlooking the sea.
Psili Ammos is located on the southern part of the island and definitely ranks among the best Thassos beaches for you to visit. Its name literally translates to Thin, Fine Sand and it is found near the picturesque village of Astris. White sand, azure waters and green pine trees, these are the elements that compose the most beautiful canvas. Makriamos beach, on the other hand, is named after its size. It translates to Long Sand and extends for over a mile. This is in fact one of the beaches closest to the capital of Thassos, thus attracting a lot of people.
There are many other beaches on the island, including Saliara and Marble Beach, Alyki and Metalia, Aspas and Potos, Pefkari and Skala Potamias, Limenaria and Nisteri. But if we had to pick just one not to be missed, this would certainly be Giola. Technically, this is more of a natural swimming pool or sea lagoon, rather than a beach. Located after Limenaria and Astris, this is a wonderful place surrounded by fine white rocks that shape a pool. This is where you can leave your beach towel and dive right in. Although it is obviously not an organized beach, the experience is going to compensate you!
