Is there transport from the airport to Keramoti? From there with the ferry I guess I saw some post with timetables, and which beach do you recommend to visit in Thassos? I only have a few days. thanks!
As del said it really does depend on what you want from you break
And from the airport no public transport to Keramoti port then. I will check the ferry times. Any advice in accomodation in any of these beaches..? many thanks guys
Yes there is a bus to Golden Beach from Thassos Town. You can consider Thassos Town as having the hub for buses going all places.
Many people like Thassos Town but just does not do it for us but everyone is different so could not say if it is for you or for any place for that matter.
For the time of the year June / early July we found Golden Beach Skala Panagia end just right for us. It had enough restaurants to keep us going for two weeks and we could pop into Skala Potamia which has about another 50 taverna's in it.
Late July / August it will be packed.
No public transport from the airport to Keramoti as far as I am aware, people use taxi's.
Leanne will help you with Skala Rachoni as not visited it as reading up on it initially there did not seem to be many taverna's there for our holiday but may be wrong.
I don't drive abroad so can't give you any recommendations.
Finally, if you were going late June / early July I did trip reports on here of Golden Beach and the surrounding area. The 2014 had a visit to Thassos Town by bus on one of the day. Also where we stayed but again that is subjective as people like different accommodations
The asphalt roads on Thassos have always been open and were never closed this summer. Only a few of the dirt roads that go through forestland have been closed on certain days as a precaution to prevent a fire, specifically on days when we had very high winds.
On Friday I went to Vathi Beach and the dirt roads were open all day (I went and left without a hitch). So it's not a continuous road closure... in fact, it mainly depends on weather conditions and the fire risk assessments by the Thassos Fire Department.
I discovered this year there are a lot more tavernas up and down Skala rachoni than I reaslised last year, and will be going to some of the hidden ones when We go back (13 sleeps) ... we do have a favourite though called Gekas. We did hire a car but though the hotel so can’t really give too much advice on best places to use although I think Augie had a suggestion a while back. I did notice a few signs saying rooms to rent but I remember last year when we went end of July the rep mentioned ther were no rooms on the island so I’m guessing silly season you would need to book and not just arrive. We went thought Thomas Cook (we can only book the hotel we love though them) but I’ve also looked though this site and there are some lovely places.
Thing is no matter where you stay on the island you will enjoy, it’s all beautiful and everyone is friendly
Augie thanks for the info on the roads, I been trying to keep up with news but its hard. I
The weather is so far saying it’s starting to cool down next week
I have them photographed on my computer in June 2015 but not much help. Where are you intending going ?
Its on here
I can't comment on the best ferry route to take as we've always gone Keramoti to Thassos, what I will say is that getting the ferry into Thassos Town will give you better transport options to wherever you're staying.
If you're coming by car then I recommend taking the Keramoti - Limenas route because:
The weather in the middle of September is usually very pleasant with temperatures ranging between 25-30 degrees celsius (on average).
- Shorter & faster
- Slightly cheaper
- Offers more frequent ferry crossings throughout the day
