About Thassos Island

Thassos or Thasos is the most northerly of the Greek islands. it’s part of the Aegean group and offers a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The island is relatively unspoilt by tourism whilst still offering all the amenities that a tourist requires.

Getting to Thassos

Unfortunately Thassos doesn’t have its own airport, the closest airport is Kavala on the mainland. From Kavala airport head to Keramoti port and take the short 30 minute ferry ride to the island.

Another route is to fly to Thessaloniki airport, the flights are usually a bit cheaper but as it’s further away from Keramoti port you’ll probably need to allow an extra couple of hours to make the drive.

It’s also possible to drive from Thessaloniki airport to Kavala port which reduces the drive but the ferry from Kavala port to Thassos takes longer and costs more so the choice is yours.
