Excursions on Thassos
On Thassos island the are a few excursion trips organized by local agencies.
First and the most popular is the cruise around the island. There are a few boats that start from Potos, Limenaria and Limenas. The excursion lasts from 9:00-17:00 and the trip is all about fun and swimming. The boat passes next to some of the most famous beaches and most secluded. Going on the cruise has always been a good way to spend your day a bit differently. The price is 25-30e per person depending on the agency. Breakfast and lunch are included in the price.
A trip around the island by bus is intended mostly for the tourists than didn’t come by own car. The bus goes around the whole island which can be exhausting for some people due to all-day travelling. Going on this excursion you will be able to see some of the most popular places (Marble beach is not included because it is not accessible by bus), a monastery of Saint Archangel Michail, traditional village Panagia, capital city Limenas, gold factory Iris Gold. The price is aabout 30e per person. Meals are not included.
One of the excursions that are not so popular and are organized only in August is a trip to Kavala and the archaeological site Filipi. It is less popular because of the price (40-50e per person) and it can be exhausting because of the distance, but it’s definitely worth it.
If you like fun and Greek music, you are the perfect person for the Greek night. The most famous Greek nights are being held in the tavern Augustos, in Theologos. The ticket is 25e per person and it includes traditional dances and music, and a dinner (lamb or chicken). The show starts at 20:00 and lasts until midnight.
Also, in the tavern Iatrou, the Greek night is organized a few times a week during the summer season, but before heading to Theologos, get information about the days when it is organized.
Tickets for these excursions can be bought in our agency in Potos, opposite the church.
