Thassos Town Holidays

Thassos Town holidays

Thassos Town, also called Limenas, is at the northern tip of Thassos and where the ferries dock from the mainland. It is a most pleasant island capital. With mountains behind, a sandy beach to one side and a picturesque old harbour, it has a relaxed Greek air, a wide choice of shops, cafes and restaurants, and a vibrant evening atmosphere.

It is also littered with reminders of its past as the modern-day town is built on the site of the ancient city. Thassos is rich in minerals, and the two safe harbours here meant that Thassos enjoyed prosperity for years, as evidenced by the Macedonian, Hellenistic and Roman remains still visible. Walk anywhere and you will stumble across the remains of a thick protective wall or perhaps a sanctuary. The most evident site is the ancient Agora near the old harbour, whilst above the town is a tremendously located amphitheatre, now under slow restoration. There is a small museum where you can see some of the finds, but most lie undisturbed.

Holidays In Thassos Town

For a big name site, guided excursions run to famous Philippi not far away on the mainland, close to Kavala. The beach is sandy and popular, and can fill up. But it is easy to hop on one of the watertaxis to larger Makriammos a little down the coast, or to Golden Beach.

Thassos Town can appear quite sleepy in the day, but in the evenings it comes to life. The waterfront bustle gives way to a vibrant backstreet restaurant scene, with tables filling the narrow lanes.
