    Hi, I will stay in Kinira and would like to rent a car in a location close by or in Limenas as I want to visit Limenas anyway).
    Do you know how and when I could go to the car-renting-places via bus? I saw there are busses at 10:30-12:50-16:15 from Limenas, which would go to Kinira, but I couldn't find times when they depart from Kinira.
    And thanks for the promo-code for rentacarpotos ;)

    Regards

    Heya Martin :)

    The route you are interested in on the time table here is the 1st row which shows:

    Alyki ► Skala Potamia, Golden Beach & Limenas

    This bus departs from Alyki at 8:20, 10:20, and 16:25. It passes through Kinira and will take you to Limenas. I'm not sure what time the bus would reach Kinira, since traffic on the road can influence the arrival time, but I'm guessing 10-15 minutes after it leaves from Alyki. Maybe more.

    So when travelling to Limenas from Kinira, I recommend you get to the bus stop in Kinira at 8:30, 10:30, or 16:35, (north-bound side of the road) and be prepared to wait 5-15 minutes in case the bus takes longer. Be sure to carry water with you!

    You could also speak to the bus driver or bus station staff when you're here and ask them for their best time estimate, or call them at +30 25930 22162.

    I think there is a Potos in Golden Beach opposite the Campsite in Skala Panagia end.

    Hey Denis :)

    Potos Car Rentals has an office in an easy-to-find location across the street from the Campgrounds (as Delboy already mentioned). They're very dependable and I could highly recommend them.

    Check out this link for useful information:

    Thanks a lot Delboy and Augie!
    One more question - can you tell me about taxi prices on island? For example how much will taxi cost from Golden Beach to Panagia/Thasos? And what is best way to visit Marble Beach?)
  • DelboyDelboy Posts: 287Member (+)
    I walked to both places from Golden Beach. Skala Panagia is up hill but the bus runs there via Skala Potamia, Potamia and then Panagia. I would be guessing the taxi price but you can get to Thassos Town for 20€s and both are nearer

    Thx again Delboy!

    hi Dundel,

    If you fancy the walk I did it using photographs in the 2014 trip report. I think the Marble beach walk was on day 10. IMO I did not like the place and thought it was crowded and overrated. But have a look at my photos it may be different for you and you may like it
