Fishing boats in Limenaria Port Thassos

When collecting your rental car from Limenaria, why not carve out some time to check out the 2nd largest town on Thassos, with its stunning harbour and promenade where you will find plenty of restaurants, tavernas and coffee shops which spill out onto the promenade, offering a relaxing place for a meal, snack or just a drink to take in the view and in the early evening a place to watch a beautiful sunset. On the other side of the promenade there are even more tavernas, souvenir shops and small supermarkets. You’ll also find a small-town sandy beach where you can swim safely. To the right of the resort there is a 2 km sandy/rocky beach, which is great for beachcombing. To the left of the harbour on the headland there is a large building Palataki once used as offices by a mining company, here there are still some remaining mining buildings and equipment to explore, easily reached on foot or by car. The views are stunning from the headland and below, where the main mine workings took place, you’ll find Metalia beach, with its beach bar and gorgeous shoreline which is made up of shingle and has large slippery slabs reaching out into the sea.

Limenaria has a bank situated on the main crossroads and two cash machines situated either side of the harbour, one by the police station and the other by the post office.

View of Port in Limenaria Thassos

Whether you head north or south, when leaving Limenaria there are petrol stations in close proximity . In May, June and September the roads are typically not busy, but at the height of the season in July and August, traffic can be great and parking on and around the harbour can be difficult.

If you choose to travel north on the coastal road your first port of call will be Tripiti, which has one large hotel and a few smaller ones to the north side of the beach. There is also a taverna on the south side of the beach which is a little quieter. The sand and shingle beach is very pretty.

Continuing north you can expect dramatic coastal views before reaching Skala Marion with its small picturesque harbour and a few restaurants and tavernas. You will find soft sandy beaches at each side of Skala Marion where you can bathe safely. Each has its own taverna. These beaches are very popular in the height of the season. Inland you will find the picturesque mountain village of Maries with its village square and pretty church. From the village there are signs for Maries Lake, but please note that this road to the lake is a dirt road and can only be reached by a Jeep or 4 x 4. The road to the lake takes you through a magnificent pine forest and once you have arrived offers the ideal place for hiking or just relaxing with a stroll around the lake and waterfall.

Back to Limenaria and heading inland you will find the mountain village of Kastro, a newly completed road now enables everyone to access this old mountain village which has been beautifully restored after being abandoned for many years.  The village name comes from the old castle which existed on the original site (Kastro means ‘castle’). The rugged views from Kastro are extensive and amazing and the village is enchanting with its church of Saint Athanasios surrounded by its newly restored stone houses. There are a couple of tavernas offering food and drink.

Travelling south from Limenaria, you will find the charming little beach resort of Pefkari, it is made up of a few hotels, restaurants, tavernas and beach bars which stretch along its beautiful sandy/pebbly beach. It has a quiet and relaxing feel with a few water sports on offer. Just a few kilometres away lies the pretty village of Potos, its narrow streets are full of shops, restaurants and tavernas. It has a small harbour and a beautiful sandy beach which is fine for swimming; it is a very busy and popular resort which gives it a cosmopolitan feel.
