Spending one or two days inside the Thassos island is well worth. The mountain and the lake are great for one-day hiking or picnics. The lake itself is great for nature lovers who like quiet locations without tourists.

Thassos is more than sea. The mountain is so green and a trip to Lake Marion is a real pleasure - extremely interesting olive gardens, beautiful views. And you can find pure honey there

A nice place to walk and get out of the sun for an hour. The small village of Maries (nearby) has a couple of restaurants in a shady square that provide a lovely place for a spot to eat. It's fun watching people arrive in...More
