Skala Maries, also known as Skala Marion is a tiny village based around a sandy bay on the west coast of Thassos
. It’s more southern than the other west coast resorts making it very handy if you plan frequent trips into Limenaria
which is just 10 minutes drive away. If you’re coming from the capital Limenas
then it’s around half an hours drive.
Despite being small, Skala Maries boasts a good selection of hotels, guest houses, apartments and villas. There's also a handful of tavernas, mainly around the water front which makes for a lovely place to sit and enjoy a meal or a few drinks.
There's a supermarket and a shop selling locally produced goods like honey and Olive oil, unfortunately there's no ATM or car hire outlets but there's both in nearby Limenaria.
There's minimal nightlife in Skala Maries, as mentioned there's just a small collection of tavernas so no late night bars and no entertainment like Greek nights or Live music.
Most people that come to Skala Maries will be happy with this, it attracts those that like a quieter and slower pace to their Greek island holiday.
Skala maries is a beach lovers paradise as it’s actually based around 3 good sandy bays giving you a choice of beaches whilst staying here. Take a look at Skala Maries beach
, Atspas beach
and Platanes beach
