THASSOS ISLAND: WILD BEAUTY
Thassos Island! What a beauty! Rebel One 😉 For me, this greek island, it seemed to be like a beautiful girl, with wild look and long hair..so easy to love, but so hard to conquer. Thassos Island is full of mediteranean vegetation, colourful flowers all around, Ipsarion Mountain, Aegean Sea and so many little wild beaches of arranged ones.
I let myself conquered by Marbel Beach beauty. So…so…exotic..and unusual and..full of grace! It is located in a marble quarry, near a tiny harbor, at the foot of the mountains. With very soft and white marble dust instead sand, a green light milky watersea, and a blue sky. So divine! You must see this treasure!
But the largest, and peacefull beach, is Golden Beach: golden soft sand, little deep green-blue watersea and so many tiny fishes! What a joy to be here! Lovely!
My big dissapointed cames from Aliki Beach. Why? I.ll tell you: internet is full of sites who presents photos from Aliki Beach-Thassos with white shiny sands. No, people! NO! Aliki Beach HAS NO WHITE SAND! It is grey and a little brown. The beach is so small, and there are small rocks/gravel all around. The tourists are too many all the time and it so hard to fiind a place to stay on this beach. Indeed, it is located in an awesome bay, but….no white sand..too much gravel.. It wasn.t funny, here. I wouldn.t say Aliki Beach is the best! No way.
If you want to eat something, you will fiind aut so many taverns and restaurants everywhere. My advise: pay more attention at how clean is that restaurant, cus not all restaurant respects the hygiene rules. But, I will recommand you,2 restaurants from Skala Potamias, where I was hosted. The first one is Korali Restaurant with an wonderful atmosphere: located on the shore of the aegean sea, with beautiful flowers and candles on the white tables and so tastey greek food! You should try sarmalaki or stuffed peppers with rice and meat so so many flavours! Beautiful..
The second one, is Ya Souvlaki Restaurant. With a rich greek view and a great waiters team who.s working on and on, in a warm and joyful atmosphere created by them, you can taste the famous gyros, or souvlaki, of a tastey fish mix plate. I admired the manager of Ya Souvlaki, cus I felt his dedication, his joy and his integrity on his job. What a good example to follow!
So, my advise for you: If you decide to visit Thassos Island from Greece, please come with all your heart! You will discover here so many wonderful colors: in sea water, in the sky, in flowers and bees, in the plates full of traditional greek food, in the sand, on the mountains and in the air. So much mediterranean greek wildness is expecting for you. Just Come!golden beach. thassos island/greece 2017
