I spent two weeks on the island of Thasos. I knew hardly anything about the place, just wanted a quiet, cheap, warm place to relax after a few weeks of exams. No touristy spot, no bars, shops and all that. Just lying on the beach, going for walks, eating, relaxing....
If you are looking for that, then Thasos might be the right island for you. It is less known and less touristy than many of the Greek islands further south. Thasos is close to the northern coast, towards Bulgaria.
It's a beautiful little island, very mountaineous, in fact almost all of the villages and towns are right on the coast on the almost circular island. There are a few little villages up in the mountains inland - very original and beautiful and little visited (e.g. Theologos).
I stayed in Kinira, a small village on the eastern coast. It is really was very small, there a only a few hotels and pensions here. I was there in May, when I enjoyed the beautiful weather and complete lack of tourists.
The sea is clear and blue, great to swim in. Hiking opportunities are excellent. People are friendly. If you want the bigger towns once in a while, you can rent a car for a couple of days.
Do not come to Kinira if you're looking for nightlife, shops and entertainment. It has nothing of that sort. It has only a few places to eat.
- Pros:less touristy, warm, good for hiking and swimming, quiet, cheap
- Cons:not much nightlife or entertainment, simple
- In a nutshell:A great place to come to for a few quiet sunny weeks on an island!

The only way on Thasos to get "off the beaten path" is to go inland. Since the island is very steep and mountaneous,... more travel advice
