Normally go to Skiathos but fancy Thassos....

We normally go to Skiathos but fancy a change this year mainly due to the ridiculous price increases by Thomson. Can anyone compare the 2 islands, not sure if we may find it a little too quiet...

Hi zantebird

Never been to Skiathos so sorry I can't make a comparison. I have been to Thassos though staying in Skala Potamias. I found lots of good info on the website www.thassos-island.de It's german run but you can translate. There's a webcam and also a forum with a lot of knowledgeable people on. If you look at the International Forum section it's all in English.

The ferry ride over to the island is only 35 minutes and very enjoyable with the seagulls flying alongside.

Hope this helps,

Yiamass, Jean

Been to lots of Greek Islands but have to say Thassos it my fav, last time to Skiathos was however sometime ago but found it to be to international and quite pricey- Thassos has quite a large expat brit community but is still very greek and you can enjoy a lot of greek food but like many places in Greece has become more expensive that it was 10 years ago. The season is Thassos really does end mid September with many restaurants and bar closing at that time - best time of the year to visit in my view, is end of May or early September.

But as you say not a great deal to do unless you base yourself in Thassos Town, which we always do then you have the choice R and R or a bit of night life if you want.
