Thasos is the most northern Island in the Aegean Sea. The capital consists of white houses with tiled roofs, green scenery, archaeological monuments and big hotels. Thasos or Limenas is the Island Port, presumably created in the 4th century BC.
Rich forests of Thasian pines, black pines and Macedonian pines cover the entire island. Scenic small villages are revealed among the forests or nearby the seaside. Feast of colors and sceneries vary from the green-blue of the sea, to the white of the houses and marbles, or the green of the pines.
Lacy seashores, rough rocks, unsighted caves and natural ponds offer the chance for thrilling experiences. Herodotus refers the occurrence of "intrinsic" gold, even if this has not been verified until today.
Thasos has some of the richest soils among the Aegean islands. Fruits, honey, olives, olive oil and wine are some of the most famous products that the island has to offer.
Well-known and…of course crowded, is also the beach of Psili Ammos. With clean water, said to have healing properties, this beach usually gathers young people, who seem to be in mood for parties from morning…till the next one! There is also a tavern where you can enjoy your lunch or diner.
It is located just outside of Limenaria, at the south part of the island, behind the famous monument "Palataki". Here the sand is white, a unique phenomenon of originality and beauty, while the surrounded area is covered with black metal, thus creating a rare natural work of art.

Diver to diver is not only a diving center - the first established in Thassos - but also a volunteer rescue center - the only one recognized by the Hellenic coast guard.
