Travels On Thassos Island - August 2020

Some get great reviews online, and Atspas Beach is no exception to this. Located at the village of Skala Marion (Maries), the drive from Skala Potamia was scenic and beautiful. […]
Earlier, I reviewed our accommodations on Thassos Island – Athos Bungalows – and wrote that I had really enjoyed the location – close enough to the beach, but up on the mountain slope where I could walk some trails. We had a marvelous view of Mount Ypsarion (Ipsario), the highest peak on Thassos Island at […]
