Kinira is a small, charming village on the east coast of Thassos
. It’s roughly 20km from Limenas
the islands capital and that would take around half an hour to drive.
Although Kinira is in a quiet region that people visit for it’s natural beauty and tranquillity, it still has everything the tourist needs including supermarkets, tavernas, restaurants, a good selection of hotels and apartments and of course a friendly welcome from the locals.
There's a handful of tavernas in Kinira, most of which have a traditional feel to them and some offer great views out to the little island called Nisida Kinira that's just off the coast.
If you want a nice meal and a few drinks of an evening then Kinira is perfect, just don’t expect lively night life or anything like that.
If you have a vehicle then Kinira is a great location for exploring the island, you can easily get to the best beaches on the east coast as well as heading north to Limenas or south west to Limenaria
. The only long trip you’d have is if you wanted to visit the villages and beaches on the west coast.
There is a beach at Kinira that’s usually fairly quiet, it’s mainly pebbles, fairly small and not organised, to learn more about it go to our Kinira Beach
