You can also visit the Ancient Theatre of Thassos right above the harbor, where several festivals take place throughout the year and many people gather to enjoy performances in a milieu of panoramic views. Every June all the way to September, the locals collect and process honey, which Thassos is renowned for. Aside from Honey making, olive picking and wine harvesting are other activities even travelers can participate in during these months. The varied coastline of Thassos offers diving opportunities in underwater rocks and reefs, there are also perfect conditions for windsurfing since the island can get quite windy in summer. Some great options for watersports are Pachis Beach, Skala Rachoni Beach in the north or Psili Ammos Beach and Potos Beach in the south.

Catamarans are a special type of boat, as they are a superstructure over 2 other boats. This unique design makes them very stable and at the same time, they are the most spacious boats since they have the width of about 2 single-hull boats. They are relatively affordable as they can accommodate many people, while fuel consumption is low compared to a motor vehicle. Due to the plenty of space they have, they are an excellent choice for people that want to throw a party or organise an event. For all the above reasons, there is a high demand for this type of boat in the recent years.

Yacht rentals in Greece offer multiple opportunities for island-hopping experiences. Halkidiki, Lemnos and Samothraki, which is a little further away, are options you can add to your cruising program.

With a skipper you can enjoy even more spits in the three different ‘fingers’ that form the peninsula of Halkidiki. Sithonia makes up the middle ‘finger’, lots of catamarans come here for the clean water or to escape from the crowds that fill Kassandra, which is relatively close to Thessaloniki. For the more advanced sailor, heading to Lemnos and Samothraki, you can enjoy a long stay for a 7-day charter experience. Although they may seem as far-flung corners of the Aegean, The strong wind conditions make it perfect for surfing and the hospitality of the people will make you return with an ever-present smile.

Alyki has some of the most beautiful bays in Thassos and is situated on the southeast side of the island.
