Thassos is the most northern island of Greece. It lies only 12 km south of the coast of Macedonia. The island is small, it has a little more than 100 km in circumference and impresses with its diversity. You might want to rent a car, because bus transport is focused on the road around the island, rarely reaching areas in the inland of the picturesque Greek villages. In the central part of the island the mountains rise with Ipsarion peak approx. 1200 m above sea level, which you can reach on foot or by Jeep.

The beautiful beaches of the island are easily accessible thanks to the good road networks, and even during a short holiday you can see those most famous and the little ones hidden in wild coves. The most famous beaches, like Golden Beach, Paradise, Tripiti, Psili Ammos, gently descend into the sea and are ideal for a family holiday. It is also worth visiting the small villages deep into the island, where time stopped a long time ago. In such places there is usually one tavern on the central square, a chapel, older men sitting in front of houses observing the surroundings, and cats wander around lazily in search of shade.
