Skiathos or Thassos

Skiathos Town or Thassos Town that is the question???

Can anyone tell me the difference between the two.

Which is more traditional but also not too quiet.

Which is prettier, and is there any other special traits.

We will be going august so does either have a nice breeze.

Any info appreciated as really cant decide between the two, thassos is approx £200 cheaper though in total.

It is between Laios hotel in Thassos or Princess House or oasis studios in Skiathos Town

1. Re: Skiathos or Thassos

We were on both island last year. Skiathos in may and Thassos in august.

Thasos town is not as charming as Skiathos. Skiathos Town beats Thassos severel times. It has more entertainment and restaurants. Better shopping etc.

THe beach in Thassos Town is not good. But there are severel good beaches on the island.

If you are going to Thassos I would highly sugest that you stay in a smaller resort. It could be Potamia - wich have a nice beach. And good restaurants. Expect lots of greeks in august, they are having holidays too.

So if nightlife, good restaurants is importent for you - go for Skiathos. The beaches are good on both Skiathos as on Thasos.

Kind regards Jørgen

Have been to thassos on a number of ocassions and have to say that this would be the choice for me, hire a car and travel around the island. There are plenty of beaches which are easy to get to, The Town in Thassos is not so busy as to be a problem. Have never had a problem in the evening with finding a place to eat, there are plenty to choose from.

Cannot help with the hotel you have suggested, but for me it would be Thassos everytime.
