Summer on Thassos offers endless sunshine, magnificent beaches, and fun sea activities that attract tourists year after year. Many, however, don’t realise that Thassos is more than a Summer destination… it’s a year-round island!
The list of watersports available on Thassos island is only limited by your energy, ability and imagination! In addition to the most traditional of water sports such as swimming and jumping into the sea, there is also wind surfing, body surfing, kayaking, banana and donut riding, water skiing, parasailing, snorkeling, pedalos, jet skiing, motor and speed boats, and sailing. Places where you’ll find organised watersports include Golden Beach, Pachis Beach, and Skala Rachoni Beach in the north, and Pefkari Beach, Potos Beach, and Psili Ammos Beach in the south. If you bring your own equipment, however, the possibilities are endless!
There is nothing quite as special as arriving by boat at a lovely secluded beach, and to swim, wade or row ashore, or to simply stay on board and to lie on deck in a sheltered bay while taking in the beauty surrounding you. To bear witness of a group of dolphins gliding through the water alongside the boat (which takes a bit of luck), or seagulls coming down from the sky to greet you, are very life-inspiring experiences to be had on Thassos island.
There are many boat trips from which you can choose! They all vary by their starting locations, the distances they travel, and the beautiful locations they visit. Among them are the Around The Island Trip, which tours the island’s entire coastline, and the Beautiful Beaches and Bays Trip, a shorter tour with longer stops at some of the best beaches the island has to offer – both trips complete with a delicious barbecue on-deck! Additionally, there are small group fishing trips you can join, or of course, you can organise your very own private boat hire!
