“Thassos Capital”
Reviewed March 18, 2009

Limenas is the capital of Thassos and as such offers the best selection of facilities on the island. On the shopping front there are small boutique shops together with the usual tourist shops. One very good place to look for gifts is Lollipop located in the square.

For the hungry traveller we would suggest that you try Zorbas, Il Posto, Mouses and The Thassian. For a drink Rumours, Spiros and Bar Brazil are reliable watering holes.

On the beach front the Town Beach is adequate but gets very busy in high season. Better to head for Tarsanas or Nisteri Beach which are both served by bars/restaurants in nearby hotels.

Car hire is catered for by all the big companies Hertz, Avis, Europcar etc, as well as Potos which is a local company.

All in all we think Limenas and the local areas of Glykadi and Scala Rachoni make an excellent base for a holiday.

“Relax, Relax,Relax”
Reviewed March 3, 2008

I have been to Thassos Town for the past 4 years and have never been disappointed.
The ferry from Kavala to Thassos is breathtaking going out, however I am usually very upset on the way back(saying goodbye to the island)
Thassos is a destination which allows one to totally 'get away from it all' The weather has always been great and the people very hospitable. The beach in Thassos Town itself is not much to write home about, sand in parts shingle in others. However there are some fab stretches of beach over the other side of the island. We enjoy eating out and therefore have always opted for s/c apartments. The reasturants (of which there are many) serve great traditional (in my opinion) Greek food at a very good price. The waiters stand outside the reasturants and do try to entice you in, This can be a little off putting however if you firmly say no thank you or just raise your hand before they ask you they will not continue. If they do just continue walking. ( They are only trying to make a living during the summer months and they do work so very long hours)
We usually eat at a different reasturant each evening. If you are looking for a holiday full of nightclubs and loud bars this is not the holiday destination for you.
I always come back from Thassos feeling wonderfully relaxed.
