Skala Kallirachi is the small beach on the edge of the village with the same name. It’s in the middle of the west coast of Thassos
island. It’s roughly 23km from the islands capital Limenas
which would normally take about 30 minutes to drive.
There’s actually a couple of sections to Skala Kallirachi beach with the main sections round by the marina, these areas are mostly sandy and the water shelves gently into the sea making it a good option for young families. The other sections to the north are narrow and consist of more pebbles than sand, these sections will generally be quieter than those down at the harbour.
As you might expect from a beach on the edge of a quiet village, there are no water sports, no pedalos and minimal facilities, there’s a couple of tavernas and hotels in the area around the beach and the harbour so there’s places to get lunch and there’s a few sun loungers available in the height of summer.
There’s some supermarkets in the region too so you can pick up a cold drink or a bucket and spade if required. Most people that come to Skala Kallirachi beach are there to simply enjoy the scenery and relax, it’s definitely not a tourist hot spot.
There’s ample parking near the beach as well as in and around Skala Kallirachi village
. Getting here is easy, just follow then signs for the village and then head down to the coast.
