Thasos or Thassos is a Greek island in the northern Aegean Sea, close to the coast of Thrace and the plain of the river Nestos but geographically part of Macedonia. It is the northernmost Greek island, and the 12th largest by area. Thasos is also the name of the largest town of the island (also known as Limas Thasou, "Harbor of Thasos"), situated on the northern side, opposite the mainland and about 10 kilometers (6 mi) from Keramoti.
Thásos Verdejante. Deep blue. Scenic and unpredictable. Thassos Island, suffered and glorified. Thassos Island which gave rise to sculptures, painters and famous athletes, but mainly to the men of the sea and land, men who suffered and fought for their lands. Thassian pine forests, black pines and Macedonian pines cover the entire island. Picturesque little villages are revealed among the forests or in the vicinity of the coast. The feast of colors and scenery varies from the blue-green of the sea to the white of houses and marbles, or the green of the pines. Coastal beaches, rugged rocks, perspectiveless caves and natural lagoons offer the opportunity for exciting experiences. Herodotus refers to the occurrence of "intrinsic" gold, even though this has not been verified until today. However, the little paradise you can discover in Thassos reminds us that there are things in life that are far more valuable than the whole gold of the world.
