Thassos - sailing holidays in northern Greece
The island of Thassos
lies just of the Macedonian coast in the northern Aegean
, here called the Sea of Thrace. It is occupied by a range of wooded hills rising to 123 metres and slashed by deep valleys. The northern and eastern slopes fall steeply to the sea; on the south and west sides the hills slope down more gradually, forming numerous deep sandy bays. The closest yacht charter
base is Skiathos
, the most important island of the Northern Sporades
. Yet, it is quite remote and difficult to include in a 7, 10 or perhaps even a 14 day itinerary from Skiathos. Thasos town offers an abundance of ancient history: town walls, temples, sanctuaries and theatres.
