“Dirty and crouded in peak season”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

The water is dirty from the hoards of tourist that swim in the waterhole during the day.. It takes a big storm to clear the water..
Gioal is the usual tourist attraction where you check yourself in and take a few photos, nothing more.

“Loved Giola, loved the sea, loved the drive”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

1. You can acces the road all the way down to the sofdrinks bar even if you have a Front Wheel Drive.
2. Have you hat and your bottle with water at least, and your watershoes with you. If you have a diving mask it's even better.
3. You can even jump in the sea, since there's a ledge that you can come out of the sea on. The abis in the sea, spoted with a diving mask is GREAT (~20 m in depth).
4. There are diferent heights that you can use to jump in the Giola. We've used the bigest, but you have to be careful when touching the water surface, and try to jump to the left side, since there's a big boulder to the right side.

“Think twice and don't go”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

First of all if you are on foot be sure that you have to walk about 30 minutes in dust under the sun. But the worst thing is climbing the hill with slippers. Do not let the photoshoped pictures mock you. The possitive advices are just for to feel the pain of travellers who visited there. Maybe better in different time of the year but it was a left pool just without frogs in.

“Too much effort for nothing”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

We read about giola in internet, that its a beautiful natural pisine so we thought it would be nice.first its 3 kilometres to go and 3 to return in a road without nothing, not a tree! When we arrived we didnt like to swim in, because the water was so dirty and so many people in it. Thank God there is a cantine over there to take water for the return. If you have old people, children and tired dont do it!!! You will be ill for 2 days after and it will destroy your holidays.

“Natural pool”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

It doesn't get any better than this... the Northern Islands of Greece are just as beautiful as all of the other islands of Greece - the Northern Islands are better because they are greener... yes you can find shade everywhere on the Island of Thasos!!! It has so much to discover... Enjoy your stay, you'll want to go back every year.
