We do hope all goes well and the whole island and its visitors stay safe and well.
The shaking is caused by what we believe is a (technical) bug that we've never been able to find and squash. It shakes randomly and infrequently, with no pattern whatsoever, so we're still trying to figure out how to fix it.
Wait a second... since tsipouro is a cure for almost every ailment perhaps you're onto something Frenchie... maybe that's the secret for curing the camera's bug!
and couple fishing. It would have made great shot for car advert.

Did you know that with a click of a button (see red circle below) you can download a snapshot of what you see on the webcam? The button will appear when you mouse over the webcam.
Have a great weekend!
You'll need to go here in order to post the photo on this Webcam chat feed.
The photo upload tool is only available in the forum and not here on the Webcam page, unfortunately!
I live locally on the mainland. I think you will be fine. Everything is starting to open up. The ferries are functioning as normal now and I believe come August everything will be more or less back to normal. The separation on beaches will probably still be enforced but most of the beaches, tavernas and bars will be open. Your only problem could be from UK Government if they do not accept the reciprocally of an 'Air Corridor'. Enjoy your stay on wonderful Thassos.
Thanks for your reply I hope your right and we can return to Thassos in August. I have been looking at the web cam and see some sunbeds on the beach good sign.
That's very sad news indeed. Could you please share your source with us? We'd really appreciate knowing where you learned that TUI has officially pulled out of Thassos in 2020 because just yesterday we spoke with the local TUI office on Thassos and they didn't know this.
We did ask the reps here on Thassos for some clarity yesterday but they couldn't offer any. My thinking is that TUI headquarters may be waiting to see how the situation develops before making any decisions and subsequent announcements.
At the moment, as things stand now in the UK, I believe it's impossible for TUI to make some of their plans as we continue waiting for the EU and the UK to lift travel restrictions in July and beyond. Considering how Greece is one of the few safe destinations where TUI could bring tourists and make some revenue this summer, it would be in their interest to bring people to Thassos as well as the other destinations in Greece, assuming there would be enough demand in the UK.
We're still holding on to hope until we hear something official. Keep us posted with what you hear on your side, please!
Will do !
One way or another I am determined to visit my favourite place and friends this summer
Many thanks for keeping the camera on the wedding party at the end of the beach
lovely to watch - see you next year as we couldn't come in June this year - stay safe all of you -0930 hours - 25.06.20
We're glad you were able to watch the happy couple tying the knot live from Golden Beach! We had no idea about the wedding ceremony in advance... we simply noticed them setting up for it on the pier and then my partner, Sebastian, focused the camera there thinking you might enjoy watching the happy occasion.
Sebastian is the guy behind the curtain who controls the webcam and he's also the one who does the risky climbing up the roof in order to clean the webcam for you when it collects rain spots and dust patches. Speaking of cleaning, I think it might be time for another... Sebaaastiiaaaan!
My partner, Anthony, confirmed just today that TUI won't be flying to Thassos in 2020. He called the Thassos TUI office again and they were able to confirm this time.
He announced it here:
Our next bet is for the UK and EU to lift restrictions this summer so that you can travel here independently. We'll keep an eye on these developments and keep you posted!
I saw the event on the pier towards the end and thought it was a photo shoot lol. I said to my wife if I had been there perhaps I could have asked if I could also get a few shots of it.
However, what I thought was a model was obviously the bride.
I did later do a snapshot from the webcam whilst they were putting all the equipment and archway into the van but probably not much use to the bride lol
There's no doubt the lucky couple would've been immortalized in history via your 2020 Thassos Holiday Report!!
Wow, it's going to be your 14th visit already? This will be quite a unique experience compared to your previous 13 trips... fewer crowds and more beach to yourself!
I can confirm we do have cases of covid-19 on the island who are currently staying at the quarantine hotel but this is no reason for concern because the situation remains under control. They are young, asymptomatic cases that tested positive at the land border when they were entering Greece. Thassos was their final destination. The authorities informed these people and moved them to the quarantine hotel. I heard they are feeling ok and are showing no symptoms.
FYI We've been discussing this and similar topics here.
Make sure you have some change for the tolls on the motorway,i'm not sure how much it is now,I think it was 2 euros last time we did it.
