Archaeological Museum of Thasos

Reviewed By 66Nicolas - Chania Town, Greece

It is very interesting small museum.
I strongly recommend this attraction which is good even for small children. Children some time get bored with things like a museum, this one thought because of its size it is ideal to introduce youngster in to history and art. The artifact on exhibition span from prehistoric times to Roman and are all related to the history of the lsland of Thasos. Something else that l like to mention all the statues on display are made from local marble which is famous from the antiquity up to our days.

Not sure what the difference is between this beach and chrissi Ammoudia thought it was the same. Anyway as said on my other review a lovely beach with soft sand and easy to walk out to. Lovely and warm with clear water. Parasols about 6 euros but free if you use the waiter service or restaurants. Safe for children

Metalia Beach

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.

La scala beach is an oasis in the hot summer. Starting in the morning with coffees, fresh juices, we continue in the evening with cocktails and special tastes at the restaurant.

The beach is chock-a-block with seabeds.They are placed so close that you can't move freely.The music is too loud .If you want a quiet laze on the sunbed or pass your time Reading ,you'r not at the right place .This year they've changed their wholly white decoration , I think I liked the old style better

Much less interesting staff then in other travelers' reviews. Prices a bit higher, about €10 per piece, only found some nice small figures at €7. Bubblewrapped very carefully!
Easy to find, when traveling from Prinos first turn left after you leave the main road for Limenas. If missed the turn or lost just park near Ktel station and go in the direction of Prinos along the beach. Small house at the end of the beach is the one you need.

Terrible road to reach it. You need a quarterbike or 4WD. Parking is an issue if you are late. Water is clean and good as depth if you have small kids! My family likes Golden beach much more, after comparing several Beaches within 10 days.

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
