Thassos or Thasos, Tasos (Greek: Θάσος, Thásos) is a Greek island. So where is Thassos? Geographically part of the North Aegean Sea, but administratively part of the Kavala regional unit. It is the northernmost major Greek island, and 12th largest by area.
Thassos is the most northerly of the Greek islands in the Aegean island group and it lies just off the Macedonian coast in the north-east of mainland Greece.
Fabulously wealthy in ancient times, thanks to large deposits of gold and marble, Thassos nowadays lies outside the top league of Greek holiday islands but it still has as much to offer the visitor.
An excellent coast road almost rings the whole island, providing easy access to the many sandy beaches that pepper the attractive coastline.
Strangely, Thassos fails to feature in many holiday brochures so it is something of a hidden gem and spared the holiday crowds that mar some Greek islands.
