Skala Kallirachi is on the west coast of Thassos
around 25 minutes from the islands capital Limenas
and a bit less to Limenaria
which you can get to in under 20 minutes so it’s no problem to visit from either.
Skala Kallirachi is a harbour and fishing village with great views over the Aegean sea, on a clear day you can even see the mainland from here. It’s a quiet village that’s not been taken over by tourists, despite that there is plenty of shops, tavernas and restaurants and a good amount of hotels too.
So if you want to get away from the mass tourism of the main resorts then Skala Kallirachi is a good choice.
The nightlife is based around watching the sunset and having a few drinks with your evening meal, there’s no clubs, bars, karaoke or anything like that.
In general the people that visit Skala Kallirachi are those that want a quieter and more traditional Greek holiday rather than people who want to party so if that's you great, otherwise look elsewhere.
The beaches of Skala Kallirachi are not among the best that Thassos has to offer but there are a number of good beaches in the area. Take a look at Atspas beach
on the south west corner of the island or Pachis beach
up in the north west. Both will be about a 15 minute drive but if you're willing to go a bit further there's even more to see. Take a look at the Thassos beaches
page for more.
There's not much in the area for sight seeing you can take the half an hours drive towards the centre of the island to visit the abandoned old village of Kastro
. Alternatively head up to Limenas where you have the Ancient Agora
, the Acropolis of Thassos
and much more.
