Thassos Island is the most northerly of all the Greek Islands and can be found in the Aegean Sea nestled between the Halkidiki Peninsular and Kavala. Uniquely it is only 6 kilometres away from the nearest point of the mainland. Along with its stunning natural beauty this is one of the reasons for Thassos’s popularity. No lengthy ferry boat journeys, in fact you can reach Thassos in 35 minutes from the mainland port of Keramoti!
Thassos is almost circular and has a rugged beauty, with the Ipsarion Mountain range dominating the interior of the island. The mountains are covered in rich and dense forests, mainly pine but also plane and oak are dominant, there is even an ancient cedar forest. You will find mountain streams which cascade over waterfalls until ultimately reaching the sea and the wonderful beaches.
Thassos has a good road network and apart from mountain tracks is asphalt paved. The main road runs around the whole island (approximately 100 km’s) and has arterial roads which provide access up to the traditional mountain villages.
