Metalia Beach

Reviewed By Sara K - Serbia

It's not that easy to get to but it's worth it. The water is so much cleaner than the other, more crowded, Beaches. There's a big cave on the beach if you don't like being on the sun, and if it's too hot that day, it's always much cooler in the cave.

Atspas Beach

Reviewed By 3May5 - Sofia, Bulgaria

That is the best choice for Thasos! We were staying in a campaign Prinou Thasos and we took the whole way down to Skala Marion and found Atspas beach, searching for beach with sand. True it was crowded during the weekend, however this is the case in Greece during the summer:)
There is volleyball net and very nice bar with service on the beach. It was perfect!
The water was warm and not deep so kids can play and learn to swim.
All the time there was nice chill out music, as it is a closed bay it's not that windy and the best of all is the sunset!

Psili Ammos Beach

Reviewed By Krystyna K - Bucharest, Romania

Plus:
- excellent location, easy access by car
- large and generous free parking area
- plenty beach bars where you can eat, drink and in this way you basically pay for your sun beds and umbrellas
- fabulous water, clear, clean, different colors, entrance is in some parts with sand and in others with pebbles, but the first activity you are doing here is snorkeling, because there are rocks on the side and you can see there a lot of fishes, octopus and other surprises
- the beach is long and you can take a walk along the shore, climbing rocks, looking for shells etc
- they have a camping area for who is interested
- toilet area located on the beach, independent, meaning that you don't have to go to a restaurant if you don't want; very clean and well equipped
- a real pleasure to stay, enjoy and relax

Reviewed By P_South - Hastings, UK

This is a fascinating geological spot but gets very busy with many people trying to take their cars rather than walk the final few hundred metres from the road. There is a small snack bar for a welcome cold drink before the dusty ascent back to the road. Glad I've seen it but would not return, much more suitable if you are into jumping into water from high places!

Marley Beach Lounge Bar

Reviewed By Eugen N - Bucharest, Romania

This was the first beach to visit in our 2017 summer vacation and it was a relaxing experience. Nice place, very clean, good services and nice personnel. I would recommend rubber sandals or shoes due to the stones on the beach and in the water. The sea is very clear and swimming is a real pleasure. Temperature ok for everyone. Prices are good and if you want to benefit from the sun beds you just need to order something to drink or eat in the range of 10 Euros (we were a couple with a 11 years old kid). We felt great there.

Me and a friend of mine showed up at the Popeye diving center yesterday late afternoon, without having any appointment. Despite that and despite being only the two of us, we were led with a boat to a beautiful nearby island and made two very nice dives. Our guide was very kind and he did his best to show us as much as possible from the marine life. I really felt as he was also enjoying his time with us, and not only trying to rush through an obligation.
This is my second visit to that diving center (the previous one being two years ago) and I can really recommend this diving center to everyone who wants to spend some nice time both underwater and on the small boat!
For the reference - we are both experienced divers, bringing our own equipment.
