North Aegean SeaTHASSOS

The beautiful and tranquil island of Thassos is perfect for a full-day sailing adventure. Spot some dolphins near the small island of Panagia, or admire the impressive rock formations and the sea near Giola farther east. Stop by Aliki for a swim break. Then continue along the coast to Paradise Beach. The verdant islet of Nisida Kinira is perfect for either a short exploration stop or a final destination at the small harbour of Thassos town’s main port for a restful night. Thassos makes a great destination for family holidays and relaxing vacations.

Thassos is the northernmost of the Greek islands. Thasos is not subject to the meltemi and has a much more humid climate than other Aegean islands. As a result it is very green and covered with many trees. Thasos is seasonally occupied by tourists . It still produces wine and is famous in Greece for its olives.


Approaches to the island of Thasos are straightforward. For more details see individual ports
