Weather was hot. We were there in June 2016. Two days of light rain but then wonderful sunshine for the rest of the fortnight.

Holiday

Stayed at the Hotel Galaxy. Wonderful hosts. Best breakfast we have ever had in Greece. Rooms recently refurbished- very modern and spotlessly clean.
Going back at the end of this week. Can't wait.

Weather

The weather was scorching and got up to 40 degrees on some days, with clear skies.

It did rain once and produced a fantastic night time lightening show.

Holiday

Thassos Town is the capital of the island, but is really rather a small place. There is very little to do, especially after you have eaten at night, as there are no bars that I found that provide any entertainment, other than the odd accordion player.

The choice of restaurants is excellent especially Simi by the Old Harbour or the Twins in the Town.
Doukas / Thassian is great for free shots of brandy after your meal!

A must is the water taxi trip which leaves every day at 10:30 and stops off at Makryammos Beach and Golden Beach, where the water is crystal clear and the beaches are lovely, especially Makryammos.

It is really more suited to couples as there are plenty of bars leading onto the beach that serve food and cocktails till late, but there is not really much for children to do.

Places Recommended

I would take a bus ride up the hills to Panagia, which has a lovely old church and some great places for souvenir shopping.
The bus ride is around 3 Euro return and the buses are coaches, which are clean and air conditioned.

If you are into walking take a trip up to the old Acropolis and theatre which overlooks the bay and is set deep in olive and pine groves. You may just stumble across the old chapel nestled in the woods like we did.

Very nice. Found June was the best time as not too hot. September even warmer, though tends to rain

Holiday

fantastic been to Thassos several times some twice in the same year it is truly a very beautiful island and, as it's the most northerly island in Greece, it is not dry and baron.

Found people very friendly, never had any problem with food (i.e Spanish tummy, as its called), not very much nightlife unless you went to Thassos town, but ideal if you like a quiet and relaxing time.

Took our best friends last year and they could not believe how quiet it was.

Found in our experience the Magic Coast and Green Seas tavernas the best, situated on the sea dirt road between Golden Beach and Skala Potamias- well worth a visit.

Places Recommended

Found the north east of the island the best; Golden Beach the best place to stay.

Places to visit: Paradise Beach

Aliki Beach- a beautiful small bay with some tavernas and also, if interested, some old ancient ruins- recommend to go there early as it does get a little busy by lunchtime.

Limenaria at the south of the island is a small town with nice tavernas by the sea.

Thassos town is worth a visit to take a stroll through the small high st and also, if you are interested, to see the ancient ruins.

The best way to see the island is by car- I recommend a small jeep. The views are unbelievable with many stopping places to stop to take photos etc.
You can easily drive around the island as it's virtually impossible to get lost and up until last year, there weren't any traffic lights anywhere on the island.

The weather was perfect.

This is the second time that I have been to Thassos; both times were for two weeks and the weather was perfect.

The temperature was about 25 degrees in the day time and 20 degrees in the night time.

We went in 2009 in May and the second time, in October in 2011.

Holiday

Our holiday was perfect: it was relaxing and we stayed at the famous area of the Island, Grand beach, and stayed in Grand beach hotel both times.

The hotel is small- around 25 rooms- and is family run by people that make you feel like you are friends.

They do not need to hesitate to offer you anything you desire!

Thank you, Marios, one more time for the nice holiday you gave us.

Places Recommended

What can you say for this island and especially for Limenaria; every thing is so nice.

The beach of Grand Beach in Limenaria is the nicest of There you can find Grand Beach Bar and Grand Beach Restaurant- everything is very nice there!

There were 10 fully sunny days, with 3 cloudy days and one day of rain which was rather persistent.

Overall very good.

Hot, but not too hot.

Holiday

Golden Beach and its neighbouring resort of Skala Potamis are ideal for couples wanting a relaxing holiday.

A very laid back area with just a few low key bars and not many shops.

A good selection of tavernas.

The four we can recommend are Sotiris and Federas in Golden Beach and Akrogialia and Captains Table in Skala Potamis.

We stayed at the two star Gorge hotel which was very basic but fair value for money.

Places Recommended

Take the local bus into Thassos town and also go up to the mountain village of Pagnia

Very hot for the whole 2 week stay so air-con is a must if you want a proper nights sleep. Had a massive thunder storm one night followed by torrential rain but didn't care as it was still humid.

Holiday

Sadly Thassos is not the island we first visited in 2000. Now it has the tourist feel to it instead of the quiet little Greek island that it once was. At night,it is nigh impossible to eat a meal in a taverna without being pestered by someone selling you something or attempting to serenade you in various ways(very poorly i might add). The locals remain very friendly but it is amusing watching Greek families parading up and down the harbour front all night with the mothers trying to look younger than their daughters.

Places Recommended

Booked for the excursion to the mainland to the street market at Drama, the caves at Alistrati and the winery of the Lazaridis family. Sadly, due to lack of interest,the excursion was cancelled.

HAVE VISITED THASSOS TWICE, ONCE IN 2008 AND ONCE IN 2009.

BOTH TIMES STAYED IN GOLDEN BEACH AT THE MARINA APPARTMENTS A FEW MINUTES WALK FROM THE BEACH.

BOTH TIMES WERE EARLY MAY AND THE WEATHER WAS BEAUTIFUL.

THERE WAS A THUNDERSTORM ONE EVENING WHICH WAS SPECTACULAR AND NO SIGN OF IT REALLY NEXT MORNING

Holiday

THE PERFECT PLACE TO CHILL OUT.

FIRST VISIT ONLY A WEEK, SECOND VISIT 2 WEEKS.

IF ITS A PLACE TO RELAX AND WIND DOWN YOUR LOOKING FOR THASSOS IS PERFECT.

Places Recommended

FROM GOLDEN BEACH THE LOCAL BUS STOPPED RIGHT OUTSIDE OUR APTS TO THASSOS TOWN.

PANAGIA ON ROUTE IS A LOVELY LITTLE VILLAGE TO VISIT.

THASSOS TOWN ITSELF WELL WORTH A VISIT

FINEKAS RESTAURANT IN GOLDEN BEACH IS A MUST, TASTY FOOD, WELCOMING STAFF AND GOOD VALUE

Stayed in Thasos Town towards the end of May 2009.

Very warm and sunny, odd thunderstorm, but warm.

Not as quiet as thought might be, just about right. No discos in your face.

Holiday

Loved the town and the island as a whole, will definitely be back.

The town centre is very traditional with lots of little passageways and streets to follow.

Places Recommended

Aliki beach is beautiful, see the ruins, have a trip right round the island, the roads are good and the little mountain villages lovely to walk around.

Enjoyed eating at the Thassian in the town centre, and Mousses near the ferryport.

Rumours Bar, great sport bar, food, curry and quiz night.

Superb, in 14 days we had one day cloudy until about 3pm, luckily on that day we went to Phillipi on the mainland. 30deg every day, and a lovely 21deg in the evenings. Wonderful

Holiday

Superb, wonderful unspoilt island, took us back to 25 years ago on Kos, Crete and Corfu. Hotel was marvellous, clean and spotless, staff were great very attentive and friendly.
The scenery with the pine trees down to the sea and olives, plus the vibrant colours were lovely.
Loved, loved Thassos.

Golden Beach, plus adored Aliki, and the 2.5hour lunch up in the mountains in Kasiviti was brillliant. Beware of the car park though, really small and steep

Was very warm, from 25 Celsius to 32 Celsius, Only had one day of rain with a bit of wind... It was good for the flowers and all
Those beautiful olive trees...
The sea was fantastic, even that it was end of September and beginning of October 2008, a lot of people and we were swimming daily..
Around 2 and 3 PM, it was quite warm to have a swim, 28 Celsius, no bad for so late in the season, mornings a bit colder.

Holiday

Beautiful place, everybody should visit Thassos once in their lifetime, nobody is to young or to old... Was there in 1977 and 1979 it has changed a lot, became very modern and now it is so easy to go from one place to the other... So last year was there with my Husband, there is so much to see and do... We are going back 2 of September 2009 and staying for 4 weeks...
Our dream is to buy a little place to go there every fall, like end of August and September till middle of October...
We stayed at Gregory Nagoulidis and Arabella Rodriques, Apartment, what a lovely couple, that you can trust with closed eyes... They have so many accommodation ? How to find them...? we have the web. [email protected] or www.thassos.holiday.rentals.com very good people... Important thing to let people know is, YOU do not have to buy water to drink, it is clean and it comes from the mountain of Aghia Panaghia ...

Places Recommended

All the beaches are lovely, specially the golden beach and Makryamos, but itch one has his charm and beauty...
The food supermarkets are great if you want to cook a little dinner, Wine and beer are cheaper than water, incredible compare to the prices of Canada... A beautiful place to see is Aghia Panaghia, where the water comes... Also the Monastery, just go all over Thassos and will go back every year...

We stayed at the Emerald Apartments which are located near the sea in the resort of Golden Beach. The apartments were very basic and overpriced.
The resort was in a crescent shaped bay surrounded by mountains with a fabulous sandy beach. There was a good selection of authentic Greek restaurants, Overall the resort was suited to couples rather than families

Super, so going back!!!!
This will be our 4th time. Went last year and booked right away to return. We have on average 4 holidays a year and it has to be special for us to return so soon.
We stayed at the Thetis, which some reviews said was a hike into town, but you are on holiday and the walk entails a wonderful stroll along the harbour.
We have booked for the same accomodation this year. We can,t wait to pop into Jeannie and Tim.s Bar, a wonderful couple who have time for all their customers.
Bus service is a little hit and miss on Greek time but a good way to see the island.

In Limenas really liked Zorbas, Thassian, IL Posto and Mouses for food. Also liked Rumours Bar which is run by an English couple called Paul and Wanda. Lovely people and a good bar for a drink and a bite to eat. Other good bars were Spiros and Bar Brazil.

Having been to Thassos several times it was as fabulous as usual and we never fail to discover something or somewhere new and interesting.
We always stay at the Emerald hotel in Golden Beach, a tribute in itself - as Costas adds so much to the enjoyment of the overall holiday experience - he is so helpful, full of interesting stories and can recommmend the best places to see and visit.

Places Recommended

All of the small mountain villages - Panagia, Sotiri, the Monastery, the amphitheatre in Thassos town - there is so much to see!

It was hot and sunny every day, but cooled slightly in the evening. Any wind was slight.
I would recommend that you take a siesta to escape the intense midday heat.

Our holiday was very relaxing - we stayed at Golden Beach.
There were mainly Greek families on holiday there, who were very friendly, as were the locals.
All the restaurants we tried were excellent and we were never rushed through our meal.
The beach was wonderful!

Places Recommended

We hired a car and visited many places on the island. I would recommend Pangia to see the natural streams running down the allyways, Thassos Town and Aliki to see the ruins and lovely beach. Also for lunch visit the taverna at the far end of the beach in Aliki!!

Very hot as in all my previous visits to Thassos, in fact the hotter the better for me. Temperature fell at night but not by an awful lot.

Holiday

As I return to Thassos every year i think it speaks for itself, this time was no exception.
Beautifull island with lots of things to do, the Thassians are very friendly people.
Thassos is a Greek island that I think everyone should visit at least once, and in my opinion they would definitely return.

Places Recommended

Cheers bar which is opposite the old harbour(next to the ice cream parlour) is a must visit.
Owned by an English couple, Peter and Jane. They do a fabulous full english or smaller version if requested.
Pigi's taverna in the main square is in my opinion the place for your evening meal, first class.

We have been coming to Thassos since 2001 and never had a bad holiday, some years twice so that must say a lot for the island. The locals are so friendly and remember you, don't know how they do it!!!

Our hotel was small and to the usual Greek standard. Several couples have returned to the hotel every year for over 10 years.
We can see why, the welcome and the service by the proprietors and family was great.

The Macedonian tour to ruins at Phillipi and the caves at Astranti is well worth a day trip.

The weather was fantastic! It was really hot. We went in June and the temperatures never went lower than 30 degrees!

Our holiday was great we stayed in Thassos Town. We had not been before so we did not know what to expect. The restaurants are excellent and I would recommend Simi in the old harbour. The bars were great and there is one 'club', which suited us fine.
It is a real romantic island with lots to see and do.

Places Recommended

I would definitley recommend doing the water taxi to the 'Golden Beach'. Also the ampitheatre in Thassos Town is really interesting. The climb up the steps is difficult in the heat so wouldl recommend doing this later in the day, but the views from the top are fantastic of the bay.
