WELCOME TO

GOLDEN BEACH

Golden beach is more than 3 kilometers long, mostly golden white sand (hence the name!) with some pebbles in parts. It has calm, shallow crystal-clear waters which are safe for children. At the beach you can enjoy water sports. In front of Pelago Bungalows & Restaurant you can enjoy the organized area with sunbeds and umbrellas.

The perfect base to discover Thassos’ s sights…

Pelago Bungalows & Restaurant

Pelago Bungalows & Restaurant is not only a haven of calm and relaxation, it’s also the perfect starting point to discover enchanting Thassos. Picturesque Panagia village, ancient market in Thassos town, the fortress-city of Thassos, archaeological museum of Thassos, tropical Marble Beach with its blue waters as well as the wealth of excellent beaches within the periphery… Summer excursions that will surely captivate you. Experience the timeless charm of Thassos and enjoy the best Greek vacation you’ve ever had.
One can enjoy in Thassos of both mountain and sea, all no more that a couple of kilometers from each other. The coastline is full of resorts for all tastes, although rather peaceful ones (and I like that), while the center of the island is wilder, with old olive groves, pine and fir forests and small shrubs. It's worth mentioning that Thassos is also called the Emerald Island because of the sea which is greener (than the Ionian Sea for example, but still clear and salty), and also because of the green inland part.

THASSOS ISLAND

The island is also known as the “Emerald Island” because of its rich vegetation and its lush forest, clear turquoise water is so pure that extensive meadows of Neptune Grass (Posidonia Oceanica) flourish beneath the surface, which provide a habitat and nursery for a wide diversity of fish. This variety of seaweed is especially sensitive to pollution and is rapidly disappearing from the Mediterranean, and so Golden Beach has been included in the European Union's Natura 2000 project, which aimgnize and protect regions of ecological importance.

Activities in the area...

Hiking

The beaches and seascape of Thassos are impressive and enough for most people but it would be a pity not to explore the interior of the island In which you will be transported to another world! Dense forests of native plane, pine, cedar and oak trees provide refreshing shade and serenity…For those seeking something different to the beach, you will find some excellent hiking trails that take in the forest, caves, waterfalls and ultimately the peak of the island Ipsarion (1204m). You will be rewarded with magnificent views all the way to the islands of Samothraki and Limnos

Birdwatching

Thassos island is one of the most important nesting sites, on a European Level, for the Shag (Phalacrocorax aristoteli) and the Lanner Falcon (Falco biarmicus). Furthermore, it holds significant numbers of birds of prey such as the Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), the Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) and the Short-toed Eagle (Circaetus gallicus). In the past, Griffon Vultures used to nest, but now they are only visitors to the area. With appropriate conservation measures, they could re-use the area for nesting.

Diving

During recent years, scuba diving has had an explosion in popularity on Thassos and you can find several dive schools dotted around the island. All are professionally run and offer facilities for the complete novice right up until professional diver levels. You can try your luck at fishing, there are a few well organized trips available or simply find a nice spot on the shore!
