Kekes beach is one of the few rocky beaches on this island, completely hidden and invisible from the road, and very unusual.
It is located a few kilometers before Aliki beach, seen from Potos. On the right side of the road you will see the gate of the tavern Skidia. It is also the gateway to Kekes beach. As soon as you turn off the road and go through the gate that says Skidia Restaurant, you will enter a large courtyard, full of pine trees and shade, which belongs to Bungalows Kekes. Driving down towards the sea, you will find a tavern surrounded by pine trees just by the coast.
Kekes Beach is actually a long belt of flat, white rocks, where you can sunbathe and from which you can jump in extremely clear water. These rocks are also very suitable for fishing. To the left and right there are two very small, sandy coves for those in need of a gradual entry into the water.
Since the beach is not well known or visited, it may happen that you are completely alone there.
As I mentioned, there's an excellent restaurant Skidia here. This restaurant offers a wide selection of local dishes, cooked in a traditional brick oven in the backyard. Skidia is one of the few restaurants that serve traditional gyros, and not the one prepared in advance to be sold in regular fast food kiosks. The restaurant and entire surroundings are breathtaking. They're all in pine trees, and a lot of shade and lots of greenery so Kekes beach is really a unique place on Thassos.
If you like to enjoy the places that are a bit exotic, and if you do not like the classic sandy, long beach crowded with umbrellas and swimmers, Kekes will be real refreshment.
In addition to jumping in the water, you can also get in with metal stairs which there are several along the beach.
