Which Greek Island Blog

Agios Georgios

The village of Agios Georgios is nestled in the trees up on the hill side to the north west of Thassos, it's a very small village with no hotels so it's not somewhere you can base your holiday but it is a lovely place for a short visit to get away from the crowds.

Alyki

There isn’t much to Alyki as it’s really just a couple of beaches a trio of tavernas on the main beach, a mini market and a few places to stay including some old stone houses between the two beaches that are available to rent. There’s no village centre as such.

Astrida

Astrida, sometimes also known as Astris is an area of unspoiled natural beauty with gently sloping hills and rocky scenery nestled among olive groves towards the south of Thassos island. There's not much in the way of tourist facilities but that's one of it's charms.

Kallirachi

Kallirachi is on the west side of Thassos, it's a quiet village that has narrow cobbled streets and beautiful houses built from Thassos stone with terracotta roofs. The village has a tranquil, relaxed environment which makes it a lovely place to visit.

Kazaviti

Kazaviti is a beautiful village set on the mountain slopes of Thassos island, As it’s up in the mountains it offers spectacular views of the island and the Aegean sea, just watch out for those winding roads that lead up to the village, particularly at night.

Kinira

Kinira is a small, charming village on the east coast, it's a quiet region that people visit for it’s natural beauty and tranquillity but it still has everything the tourist needs including supermarkets, tavernas, restaurants, a good selection of hotels and apartments.

Panagia

Panagia is a picturesque village built on the mountainside roughly 300m above sea level, it offers fabulous views over the Aegean. It's not one of the more popular tourist resorts but it does still have a handful of places to stay and a number of good tavernas.

Potamia

Potamia is nestled in the hills of mount Ipsárion in the north east of Thassos. This isn’t the sort of village that most holiday makers would want to stay in as it’s too quiet, if however you like to visit the real Greece then Potamia could be a good option.

Assos Castle

Assos castle is in the hills above the fishing village of Assos. It's just under an hours drive from Argostoli. The remains of the castle consist of just the external walls and an entrance gate but there's also an old chapel and the remains of other internal buildings too.

Saint George Castle

Saint George Castle is in a spectacular location and offers amazing views over the island. The castle is located off the main road that runs from Argostoli down towards Skala, it has no guide and there isn’t much to see other than the ruined walls.
