discussion board forum for thassos island

 
Thassos (Thasos) is one of the most beautiful islands of Greece, combining sea and mountains. The excellent beaches with crystal clear water, the remote tiny bays, the picturesque villages and the busy night life make Thassos an ideal and popular resort. Thassos is situated close the mainland, its nearest point is 10km from the mouth of the Nestos, and it thus faces the boundary between Macedonia and Thrace.

The mountain sides are covered with forests, pines, planes, and chestnut trees predominating; the timber has always been in demand for shipbuilding.
