The island of Thassos, Greece

The island of Thassos is located in the North East Aegean group of islands.

It doesn't have an airport (the locals apparently rejected proposals for one, for fear of the island becoming overrun by tourist developments), but can be reached by a short ferry journey from the mainland port of Keramoti, or by hydrofoil from the town of Kavala.

Thassos Town (or Limenas) is the pleasant capital of the island, not yet over-commercialised, but with more than enough tavernas, bars and shops.

The town is set against a backdrop of spectacular mountains, and a morning walk into the mountains is highly recommended (pine trees provide much-needed shade on the climb up) with fantastic views of the town from the top.

The town itself has a small beach, largely frequented by locals, and a number of small coves. However, there is a regular boat service to more impressive beaches at Makryammos, Chryssi Ammoudia and Skala Potamias.

      I can't believe that it's almost 13 years since I was there! I'd certainly like to visit again some day! Lovely island and great beaches.
