Thassos Guide

At the heart of the Aegean Sea, Thassos is renowned for its clean beaches, friendly hospitality and lush scenery. The northern harbour town of Thassos is a bustling modern city and the island’s tourism centre.

Famed for its marble mining, the old town is surrounded by a stunning four- kilometre chalk white marble wall. The giant working marble factories of Thassos are a prime attraction. Thassos also attracts discerning sun seekers to its fine sand beaches and crystal clear waters. The neighbouring shallow bay of Makryammos is particularly idyllic and perfect for relaxing.

Thassos town is easily negotiable on foot, and there are many beautiful marble buildings, altars and statues to admire. Agora, the town’s main market, is definitely worth a visit and located at the market’s side entrance is the interesting archeology museum. The big museum garden displays statues of eagles, lions and more.

Thassos is host to a wide variety of shopping, and its many traditional stores are famous for locally made honey and olive oils. Thassos’ modern centre is also home to a wide range of restaurants, cafes and entertainment including many Internet and play station shops. The town is scattered with specialty bakeries selling Thassos’ puff bread, filled with spinach and sheep’s milk cheese.

Taking a break from the beaches and exploring inland is particularly rewarding. To the east is the 300-year-old mountain village of Panagia. The quaint narrow streets and small white houses with slate roofs are typical of this village. The ancient village of Kastro, now deserted, is located high in the Ipsarion hills. The village was used to protect island inhabitants from pirates in the 14th century and is home to many ancient ruins.

The nearest airport is Kavalla’s Megas Alexandros Airport, located 30 minutes from the town’s main harbour. Alternatively, the visitor can arrive at Thessalonica International Airport and continue by bus or taxi (140 miles). From the harbour, regular ships (80 minutes) and fast ferries (45 minutes) ply the route to Thassos.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
