Resort hotels are fast proliferating on the island of Thassos, a short trip from Greece’s northern mainland port of Kavala. The modern crowds who come to holiday in Thassos are following in the footsteps of the Thracians, Phoenicians, ancient Greeks and Romans who all discovered the delights of the aromatic pine forests, a white marblemore
Golden Beach; A nice relaxing resort - Jade. Date of travel: Sep 2011
As the name of the resort indicates Golden Beach has a lovely sandy beach which shelves gently into the blue sea. there are a few low key bars and a handful of mini market and one or two souvenir types shops. There is also some excellent traditional Greek tavernas. The best in our opinion are Sotiris, Federas and Finikas. If you wannt a slightly more lively night Vigilis taverna does have live entertainment some evenings. There is a bus service during the summer season which runs about 6 times a day to the capital Thassos Town. The are also a couple of car hire companies in the resort. Best for couples wanting a chill out beach holiday not really suited to families.

We were looking for somewhere quiet and uncommercialised and we certainly found it at Scala Sotiros on the island of Thassos. This resort has a working fishing harbour where you can watch the local fisherman proudly display their daily catch. There is a small beach here a handful of tavernas and a couple of shops and very little else. We stayed at the Vranas Studios which are set amongst the olive trees. There is a swimming pool here and the rooms are simple but very comfortable. There is also a taverna and bar here where we spent many a happy evening mingling with other like minded guests. We hired a car with air conditioning so we could explore this fascinating island but always returned each evening to the peace of our sleepy hideaway. Tour Operator: Kosmar

We went to Skala Potamis on the Island of Thassos which is situated in a stunning crescent bay with a beautiful mountain backdrop. The beach is sandy and the resort peaceful. There are a number of typically Greek tavernas and a few bars, though thankfully these tend to be low key, except for the overhyped Erics bar which is a con and awful. This is very much a relaxing holiday away from the bright life and night life. It is especially suited to couples who just want to take it easy but we have our doubts whether it is the right resort for singles or children. We stayed at the Susie Studios which all round were basic but comfortable and we were more than content here. Tour Operator: Thomsons
