Limenas is the capital and largest town on Thassos, it’s often referred to as Thassos Town and is located on the north coast. It’s home to the main port on the island and links Thassos to the mainland via Keramoti port on the mainland.
There are 2 ports in Limenas, the main one where the large ferries dock and the older, smaller port round the corner that’s now mainly used by local fishermen going about their day to day business and the boat tours that leave from the capital and explore the island.
Limenas will be the best location to base your holiday for a large percentage of people planing a trip to Thassos. It has everything you need including plenty of hotels, a wealth of restaurants and tavernas and even some late night bars. There’s supermarkets, souvenir shops, travel agents and vehicle hire shops too. It’s also obviously the easiest to get to as it’s where you arrive on the ferry.
Another great reason to stay in Limenas is that there’s a ton of great beaches on the north coast that you can easily walk to. Limenaki beach is actually in Limenas and then there’s Agios Vasileios beach just outside and a number of others too, go to our Thassos beaches page to find the other beaches in the area.
