3+1 reasons to visit Thassos in May

Our gorgeous island is ideal for spending relaxing, family vacations, just as much as it is for romantic escapes since the idyllic, evergreen landscape that meets the crystal clear shores of Thassos, comprise a setting that fulfills all needs and desires. Thassos is unique, whether you visit in Spring or in Summer, or even during the first months of Autumn; however the coming of Spring brings with it high yet pleasant temperatures, and the rejuvenating serenity that the island exudes make May an excellent period to discover our destination.



Visit the areas of Saliara and Vathy, also known as the Marble Beaches; their ivory sand, their turquoise, emerald waters and the surrounding blissful landscape of pines and olive trees that almost dip into the sea, will be etched in your mind for a long time. With similar traits in terms of natural beauty, Chrisi Ammoudia or Golden beach’s name speaks for itself and you shouldn’t miss a chance to experience it, especially during May, when the island is not so crowded and the weather is ideal!

Bonus tip: Take a break from the sun and the sea to visit the picturesque tavernas above the beach and indulge in the succulence of fresh fish! In Thassos, the traditional, Greek little taverna can quickly transform itself, almost as if by magic, into a romantic dinner at the old harbour, with a view to the sea and under the light of a thousand stars.


Hiking and exploring!

For the lovers of trails and the exploration enthusiasts, hiking towards the Ancient Theatre of ThassosAcropolis is a total match. Since May is perfect for this kind of activities (warm, but not too hot weather, long sunny days, calmness etc).
Starting from the boatyard on Limanaki beach, make your way up to the cape of Evraiokastro with its tiny chapel perched on a rock. Stroll beneath the shade of the pines and enjoy the majestic sea view to your left. Ascending to the Acropolis, you will be greeted by the Ancient Theatre which is unique to the whole of Greece.
