Metalia is a shingle beach on the south coast of Thassos
just outside Limenaria
, you could make the walk from the town in under half an hour or it’s a short 5 minute drive if you have a hire car or other vehicle.
The coarse sand and small stones that make up the bulk of the beach are a little rough on delicate skin so kids might need beach shoes
, these are a good idea for swimming too as there are stone plates on the sea bed which can make for a slippery entrance to the water. For these reasons we wouldn’t really recommend Metalia beach for youngsters, there are definitely preferable beaches on the island for little ones to play safely on.
The usual sunbeds and umbrellas are available on Metalia beach but they’re not as tightly packed as they are on some of the more popular beaches, there’s also a taverna serving food and drink. There’s no water sports but there is a volleyball net for those that like to keep active.
There’s parking available at the rear of Metalia beach as well as toilets and showers too.
