Re: Potamia festival
There are lots of videos (like the one below) of last year's Antamoma... let's see who can spot Adrian in the crowd first!
And in case you're interested, there are also many videos from 2012's Antamoma in Kazaviti...
You can watch both Antamomas in their entirety on YouTube! They're divided up and in sequence.
Re: Best hotel/villa for family stay with swimming pool
Hi Viktor, We open our hotel in the middle of june. The hotel is located in Skala Potamia ap 800 meters from Golden Beach. The hotel is small with 9 rooms and a large pool and a very spacious garden with plenty of space for kids to play and for adults to relax. The name of the hotel is Ipsario Garden Hotel and our website is www.ipsario.com. The website is only in Swedish/English so far, but we plan to release our new website by the end of feb. You can also find us on Go-thassos site. In case you have any questions, please send us an email to:
Re: Cycling in Thassos
Some of the bike hire shops do offer helmets, you have to ask, but, if you have your own, I do think it will probably safer, particularly if you have got children with you, to take your own, as I don't think that condition and compliance with safety regulations will be a priority for some of the cycle providers.
If you got the room in your luggage, and cycle helmets aren't heavy, I think it will be more reassuring to take your own, because that way you know that they are in good condition and that that they fit well.
Re: Is there a music store on Thasos?
There aren't any musical instrument stores or pawn shops on the island but it's possible you could find an instrument store in Kavala on the mainland, which is just a ferry ride away from Thassos.
It may be better to ask around, however. Be it your host, or the owners at the tavernas and cafes you dine at, or the musicians themselves who perform live music at the tavernas. They may have some idea as to how you can get your hands on an instrument for a short while during your holiday.
The more people you meet and ask the better your chances are to find something, so be sure to get out there and socialize while you're on Thassos. You may be surprised with how hospitable they are and willing to help!
Re: Live Webcam at Golden Beach, Thassos
Looking SO inviting this morning - sunshades up and waiting for the lucky first visitors.
We do hope all goes well and the whole island and its visitors stay safe and well.
Re: Travelling to Thassos under Coronavirus
Taking a covid-19 test will not be required to enter Greece
The Greek government and health ministry have made the decision that testing will not be a requirement for people who want to travel to Greece. Instead, everyone will be required to complete a covid-19 questionnaire before entering the country by air, land, or sea.
This week, we're expecting official government announcements on border openings, timelines, rules, restrictions, etc. for Summer 2020. We are already working on a page where we will consolidate all of the important information for you to find in one place. I'll let you know when it's ready!
Re: Golden Beach
Hi I'm Jai's wife. We had been arguing about this as I said it was seaweed and he said rocks. We have been visiting Golden Beach since 1999 and had never noticed rocks in front of Sotiris all the times we've eaten there so wondered if the sand had been washed away in the winter floods. However today it looks like it's all sand! Is the tide higher? Please save the arguments and our marriage 😁
Re: Golden Beach
Hi Gango at the time of writing this post I would say it is high tide as the water in going over the pier sometimes, which it does on rough water times. However, the tide does not change much during the time I go there.
Have a view later on in the afternoon for change of the tide.
I am not sure what answer is going to save your marriage but Augie is a better councillor than me lol
Re: Golden Beach
Hi Gango and Jai, let's pop on Zoom together real quick and settle this conflict peacefully
...or I could just confirm right here and now that what you both saw was seaweed (sorry Jai!).
The tide has come up and has taken some of the seaweed away but it might be back.
Delboy is right about the tides not rising/falling much here. High/low tides exist but they are less noticeable compared with the ocean's tides, what you see along the UK coastline.
Re: Golden Beach
Delboy's answer says it all. Gosh, he remembers Golden Beach like the back of his hand!
I'd like to add that in some sections of the beach where it used to be narrow and rocky in Skala Potamia, as Delboy mentioned, it's actually sandy and wide now. We had huge amounts of rain last November which brought sediment down from the mountains and sort of miraculously enlarged the beach and covered it with sand.
I took these photos in January 2020 (the heavy rains were in November 2019):
