Thassos is the jade island of the Aegean Sea. It is made of turquoise water, golden sand and aged olive and pine trees. As a visitor, you can relax on the beach and delight in the island’s tranquillity or stop by its quaint villages and taste the local delicacies, such as honey and sun dried olives. Thassos Town (Limenas) is built on top of an ancient settlement and is full of monuments of glorious times gone by. You can stroll around the age-old shops and patios, buy some souvenirs or visit the various archaeological sites. Mount Ipsarion is the tallest peak in Thassos (1200 m). Standing on the top, you can look out over Golden Beach and the Aegean Sea! At the foothills lie the picturesque villages of Panagia and Potamia.
