Historical sights in Thassos

Thassos has an Archaeological museum in Limenas and the ancient agora is in the capital too.

There’s an old town up in the mountains in the centre of the island and an archaeological site in Alyki so although there isn’t many sites there is something to keep the history buffs among you pleased.

Kids activities in Thassos

This is perhaps where Thassos struggles, there’s no water park and not many activities for kids in the towns, there’s no crazy golf, no go-karting and not much in the way of lively evening entertainment for those in and around their 20s.

What Thassos does have is some great beaches with water sports available to keep youngsters entertained. So all is not lost if you’re visiting as a family.

Other things to do in Thassos

There are a number of boat trips and tours that you can get on for a day out, most leave from Limenas, Limenaria or Potos but there are also some from Golden beach and Astrida too as well as some of the other beaches around the island. Ask at one of the tour operators either at the ports or in town for details on whats available.
