Maries is a traditional mountain side village close to the centre of Thassos island. Getting to Maries from the capital would take around 45 minutes or an hour and a half if you take the more scenic mountain roads.
Maries is a delightful little village to visit, it’s somewhere you enjoy the natural beauty of the area. There are a few trails to walk round to make the most of the surroundings. This isn’t a tourist destination, there are no souvenir shops and only a couple of tavernas so not somewhere to spend your entire break but a lovely little place to have a wander round.
Although not a tourist destination, there are a couple of places to stay in Maries so if you’re the sort of person that likes a slow pace to your Greek island holiday and wants to get away from the crowds of the more popular tourist destinations then Maries could be a good choice.
As Maries is not on the coast there’s no beaches near by. If you head down the main road out of Maries you end up at Skala Maries where there’s a beach and a bit more in the way of tourist facilities. This journey would take about 15 minutes in the car or just over 2 hours if you wanted to walk it.
