Thassos…… The emerald island
and the mythical land of Sirens!

From a beautiful sapphire sea setting, this predominantly green island peeks out like a jewel in the Aegean Sea.  Thassos lies very close to the coast of Thrace and the plain of the Nestos River.

The island is alive with history and tradition.  The natural beauty of Thassos is slightly overwhelming, with its wooded areas filled with plane trees, oaks, cedars, chestnuts, and fragrant pines.The landscape is alive with marble and takes on shapes and contours that are not found anywhere else on earth.  When you first embark on Thassos, you will be in Limenas, the capital of the island on the northern shoreline. Limenas, also known as Thassos, is built on the site of an ancient city.There are still marble ruins and monuments on the outskirts of the city from ancient centuries.

There are marble factories located throughout Thassos which produce marble for areas around the world.

Limenaria village: family run hotels and sandy beaches, Tripiti and Metalia

Limenaria is the second largest town of Thassos. Many people confuse its name with Limenas – the capital because they sound alike, but Limenaria is on the southwest coast and Limenas – exactly in the opposite direction, on the north.
The central beach of Limenaria is a 2km long strip of sand mixed with gravel and small stones. The region, however, has several beautiful beaches. One of them – Tripiti – is located just after the central beach, with fine sand. Another famous beach is Metalia, east of Limenaria, with fine sand and large flat stones. The water there is shallow and very suitable for children.  The hotels are small and family run, restaurants and shops are concentrated around the promenade. Limenaria has a beautiful harbour and offers absolutely gorgeous views of the Aegean Sea and the holy mountain, Mount Athos.
Thassos is known throughout the world as one of the loveliest islands in Greece, due to its beautiful and clean beaches and the wonderful hospitality of the island natives!
