    Just returned from 2 weeks in Limenaria. The fires have been quite bad and keep relighting because of winds and lack of rain. Holidaymakers still arriving and ferries as far as we could tell were still as normal. Electricity cut off a few times but the locals although worried are doing their best .

    Hi Cooperkids - We've had several thoughts about going somewhere else over the years and have tried Skiathos some years ago - was very nice but in our view busier and more expensive even then but as an alternative a good option . TBH our real love is Scala Potamia itself more than Thassos generally - we have visited Limineria several times but always just want to get back to the horseshoe bay at SP where it is so relaxing and the taverna.s are all right down on the " promenade" - have yet to find any taverna in Thassos to match the food served or the friendliness of the locals - we also went flight only this year and stayed at Aigiao studios right on the beachfront midway between Golden Beach and SP - it was idyllic and we felt quite emotional when we had to say goodbye to the owners who had looked after us so well.

    Aah Tone I am quite sure we'll be back to thassos in the future. You're right about golden beach too. The 'beach ' at Limenaria was very disappointing but we liked the tavernas and the harbour and the busy little streets. In particular we enjoyed Limenariotissa which was a very friendly family run taverna delicious authentic Greek food. We stayed at Sunray in Limenaria which was lovely and has excellent reviews however one tiny incident when I asked the owner Mària if I could have some tomato with breakfast and she said an emphatic NO and then proceeded to rant for about 10 minutes about guests going out and not eating in the hotel in the evenings. Very uncomfortable as it says in all the reviews how helpful she is and nothing is too much trouble - obviously that doesn't include tomates !

    we had a change after our 8th year to thassos, we did skopelos via skiathos, the main difference we found was that as they are nearer the mainland they are busier and the atmosphere was not as relaxed , i think the calmness and laid back way of life on thassos comes from its location in having no neighboring islands and away from the mainland, having said that it was lovely to see something different and both skiathos and skopelos have a beauty of they're own and we still had a lovely holiday

    Derek, have you ever thought about doing it yourself, we have done it for the last 5 years, it works out cheaper and you get a lot more for your money

    We went independent this year using Thomas Cook flights to Kavala - worked out slightly more than a package but so worth it - you get exactly where you want to stay :) Taxis are readily available from the airport to Keromoti ( 20 euros ) and from Thassos Town to Golden Beach ( 20 euros ) We have booked flights for next year for 7th July for less than £200 each ( just outside of school holidays ) would be well worth looking up TC flights for when you want to go Derek . We stay at Aigaio Studios 10 metres from the beach - paradise !

    We been to golden beach 20 times & this year twice , its worth while going with thomas cook , you can get in touch with where you want to stay to see if they have rooms , then it works out cheaper & they get a better price , golden beach is so wonderful n the people are so friendly

    easyjet summer flights for 2017 go on sale 3rd November if anyone wants to try the independent way to Thessaloniki. apart from the first time we visited thassos with Thompson we have always gone independent either BA or EasyJet but the last few years BA prices have been crazy.
