Aliki beach is located on the south coast of Thassos
. It’s just over 30km from the capital Limenas
and that’s around a 40 minute drive.
The beach at Aliki is actually a 3 for 1 deal as there are a pair of beaches back to back and an archaeological site too. You can read more about The Archaeological site Aliki
As for the two beaches, the main one that you come to first is just 250m long and very narrow, it has a huge selection of tavernas at the rear, most of which offer free sun loungers when you purchase your lunch and drinks from them. Just be prepared to pay a little over the top for the food and drink.
The popularity of the main beach wont be to everyone’s tastes, in some places there are 4 rows of sun loungers, which, on a beach that’s just 15m deep means they are tightly packed in. What will be to everyone’s liking is the fantastic views of the bay, with soft sand, gorgeous turquoise waters, lush green trees lining the banks and a collection of yachts in the distance this is a stunning place to spend the day.
If you are someone that likes to take a walk whilst spending the day at the beach then Aliki is ideal as there’s a lovely path that leads through the woods, around the headland to the old stone quarry.
There’s roadside parking available but close to the beach fills up quickly, you then have to walk down some steep steps through a taverna to get onto the beach itself, it’s probably not ideal for children as there’s a lot of stone steps and the water gets deep fairly quickly too, there’s also not much room for them to play in the sand either.
The second beach at Aliki is known as ruins beach and is a lot more rugged and less popular than it’s neighbour. It’s overlooked by the archaeological site and usually has a single line of sun beds and no taverna.
