Trypiti beach is found down on the south coast of Thassos
. It’s around a 40 minute drive from the islands capital Limenas
but just 5 minutes west along the main road from Limenaria
Trypiti is a good size beach, it’s roughly 400m long and around 60m from shore to the trees at the rear. There’s a large hotel at the western end of the beach and in front of the hotel is a bunch of luxury, stylish sun loungers. The middle of the beach is usually clear and then there’s a beach bar and some more loungers.
Due to the size of Tyrpiti beach it never feels overcrowded and the loungers aren’t tightly packed in so you don’t feel like your on top of the person next to you. It also means there’s a good amount of open space for youngsters to play whether that’s building sand castles, digging holes or playing bat and ball. There’s also a volleyball net up for the more active beach goers amongst you but no water sports or pedalos.
The beach is mainly sand with scattered areas of stones or shingle and some larger rocks around the entrance to the sea, it’s advisable to wear beach shoes to avoid hurting your feet on the rocks.
At the western end of the beach, past the hotel, you’ll find a small pool and a cave that it’s possible to swim through, there’s some steps cut into the beach to help get into the pool or to just sit on whilst enjoying the scenery.
There’s showers and toilets at Trypiti beach and the beach bars serve food and drink throughout the day. There’s some car parking available at the end of the roads that lead down to the beach and it’s usually enough as most people visiting the beach are staying in the hotel anyway.
