Thasos

Emerald Island of the Aegean

Cleverly advertised as "Greece's best-kept secret," Thasos lies just a short ferry ride from the mainland and offers much more than just bays and beaches. A popular holiday destination for both package tourists and independent travelers, this mountainous island boasts a blend of attractions that include shops, museums, churches, ancient sites, fine restaurants, and trendy clubs. The remains of an ancient agora--a standout among Thasos' notable things to see--draw history buffs to the island's eponymous capital city. The capital also features an outstanding museum of archaeology, which houses artifacts from the Neolithic to the Roman periods. To arrange what you want to do in Thasos, use our Greece travel site .

Where to stay in Thasos

Staying in Thasos is a smart choice for any traveler seeking a Greek island experience at an affordable cost. This small island, a favorite among those in the nearby Balkan countries and Greek families, offers a variety of hotels and private rooms for rent in the summer months. However, only the capital, Thasos (Limenas), features pensions that are open through the off-season. The entire west coast is a popular tourist destination full of hotels, private homes, and rooms, with the capital offering the widest range in terms of type and cost, many along Limenaria Beach. For a less-crowded vacation spot, head to one of the resorts along the eastern coast (Hrysi Ammoudia and Skala Potamia in particular have the top lodging options), or into the inland mountain villages, where single room rentals may be your best bet.
