Prinos is a village in the north west of Thassos
and lies just 4km from the ferry port of Skala Prinos
. It’s around a 20 minute drive from the capital and main port of Limenas
Prinos is the largest Olive growing village on the island and the local oil and honey can be purchased at the open air market in the town square every Monday, as well as these products there are locally caught fish, fresh fruit and veg as well as house hold goods and clothes, all available in a lively environment. so it’s well worth a visit.
Most people probably wouldn’t choose to base their holiday in Prinos as there isn’t that much to do and it’s not directly on the beach. It is a nice place to visit and is also a great start for many organised hiking adventures around the mountains which visitors are welcome to join in with.
If you would like to stay in Prinos or plan on visiting, you’ll find about a dozen hotels and a handful of tavernas and shops.
Prinos is the location of Thassos’s health centre, it was built here as it’s roughly half way between Limenaria
and Limenas which are the islands two most popular towns.
Nightlife in Prinos is virtually non-existent, there's a couple of tavernas where you can enjoy a delicious traditional meal and a few drinks but there's no live music or other entertainment so if you plan on visiting then you'll be the type of person that just wants to relax as the sun goes down rather than partying.
If you're staying in Prinos and want something different then the water front area of Skala Prinos is always an option. It's got a few more restaurants many of which enjoy harbour or beach front locations.
Although not on the beach there are a few in the area, take a look at Skala Prinos beach
and Skala Rachoni beach
as near by options. Alternatively, have a look at the Thassos beach guide
to find other options in the region.
There's not much in the way of attractions in and around Prinos but you can easily head north to Limenas and take in all the sights on offer there.
