Graced with golden sands, cozied up against a sparkling sea and surrounded by olive groves, Limenaria holidays offer the best Greek getaways. The island of Thassos is where you’ll find this coastal gem, which is one of the many unspoilt ex-fishing villages with captivating charm. Treat yourself to holidays to Limenaria filled with days spent relaxing on the beach and evenings accompanied with cocktails and traditional meals while watching the sun set over the Aegean. No matter if you are travelling with the whole family, your partner or a group of friends, you can find what you need here on the south coast.
Sandy Beaches and Olive Trees
You won’t find gargantuan hotels in this part of the island, as most of the accommodation options you have are cosy villas and bed and breakfasts that perfectly match the charm of the town. Fall asleep with the sound of the waves in a beachside room or in the heart of the town with easy access to shops, tavernas and the beach. For a phenomenal view and that wow-factor Greece often provides, pick a hotel upon a hill and make sure the camera is charged. No matter where you choose to stay during your Limenaria holidays, you can be sure you will only be a leisurely walk away from the sea.
Daytrips and Beach Trips
As a stay here leaves you close to the beach, it is easy to spend days on end swimming in the cool Aegean Sea. There are quite a few beaches to choose from here and one of the most scenic beaches in the peak season is full of sun loungers for topping up that all-important tan. To escape the crowds in mid-July and August, head to rocky Metalia Beach located near the old iron mines – a romantic secluded spot for two. The relatively circular island of Thassos offers plenty of daytrip options while on holidays to Limenaria. Travel south to the nearby village of Potos or take the scenic route on winding coastal roads up to Skala Potamias, one of the more beautiful beach towns on the eastern coast. Take to the hills and explore the mountain peaks and hiking trails to the north in Kallirachi-Maries or in the heart of the island. You can also drive or take the scenic bus route to Thassos Town, only an hour away, for the bustling nightlife and amazing ruins on every corner that intrigue even non-historians. The best part about a trip to this part of the island is that you can explore it all and even have time for a daytrip to the mainland at Kavala!
