Although situated in a serene corner of Thassos our Gagos Studios and Apartments have everything you may need in easy walking distance from mini markets, taverns, bars and cafes but best of all you are really amongst some of the best nature and unspoilt beaches Thassos has to offer. Astris beach is 50 metres away but a short walk will find you at Salonikios Beach which is still largely undiscovered and offers pristine waters for bathing, white sand and some rock pools where if you like snorkeling you will be well rewarded. If you prefer something more lively, including water sports and scuba diving there is Psili Ammos beach where the party never stops and the feeling is totally tropical! 5 kilometres from Psili Ammos will find you in Potos which moves to its own unique beat 24 hours a day… Going in the other direction from Gagos Studios after 7 kilometres you will reach the Archangel Michael monastery which is perched on vertical cliffs with open views over the Aegean to the holy mountain of Athos, truly breath taking. A couple of kilometres on from the monastery you will find the magical, mystical beaches of Aliki which is rich in ancient history and has some of the best fish restaurants Thassos has to offer. We would like to welcome you to Gagas Studios and invite you to explore the wonderful Thassos Island.
There is only one way to reach Thassos and that is by boat. The island has two ferry ports, the main one is in Limenas (Thassos Town), the capital of the island. The route to Limenas is from Keramoti on the mainland and is the most popular route to get to Thassos. The reason being that during the summer months the boats run every half an hour and the journey time is only 35 minutes. From Limenas to Astris is 46 km’s, take the island ring road and travel in an anticlockwise direction (follow signs for Prinos), you will go through or bypass the following villages – Skala Rachoni, Skala Prinos, Prinos, Skala Sotiros, Skala Kallirachi, Skala Maries, Limenaria, Pefkari and finally pass through Potos. Continue for five and a half kilometres until you reach Astris, you will find Studios Gagos set off the main road, look for our sign post. The second port is located at Skala Prinos and is served from Kavala, this route has a journey time of approximately one and a half hours and has less frequent sailings, a maximum of 5 in a day during summer. From Skala Prinos, again travel in an anticlockwise direction (follow signs for Prinos, Limenaria) for 31 km’s. The directions are the same as above.
Thassos does not have its own airport but is well served by Kavala Airport (Megas Alexandros) which is situated just 17 kilometres from Keramoti port. Kavala is mainly for charter flights during the summer from all over Europe but does have a twice daily connection service to Athens International Airport. Alternatively Thessaloniki, just two hours away from Kavala, has a full international airport which also benefits from several budget airlines which use it. Car hire is simple and the journey to Kavala/Keramoti is straightforward using the wonderful Odos Ignatia (E90). Alternatively you can catch the coach from Thessaloniki to Kavala which runs on the hour, the express service takes 2 hours and the normal coach 2 and a half hours.
As mentioned above, Thassos is fortunate in that it is very close to the Odos Ignatia (European E90) which is a super highway built to provide a backbone across the north of Greece. It runs from Igoumenitsa on the western Ionian Coast of Greece to Alexandroupolis on the east Aegean coast, close to the Turkish border. The E90 has good links to the south of Greece and all of the Balkan countries.
