Thasos, sometimes spelled Thassos, is a Greek Island tourist destination in the North Aegean Islands group, close to Kavala.
One of the most tourism developed islands, Thasos gathers crowds of holidayers, especially for the North Greece, since it is so close, and it is also a place for a quick weekend getaway. Here a visit can choose either a lively or a quiet and relaxing holiday, since the island can satisfy both styles. Thasos is a verdurous island that has many quaint little villages and sandy beaches with crystal clear waters. The road system of the island is very well planned and circles the island coastwise. By car you can reach most of the natural sites of the island as well as Mount Ipsariou. Some things to see are the port of Thasos, the ruins of the Venitian castle at the Limenaria and the mansions of Theologo. Ferries travel to and from Keramoti and Kavala.
Greek is the official language of Greece, and therefore it's spoken by all the permanent inhabitants of the island and most of its visitors, but the foreign visitor will have no problem at all communicating in foreign languages, mainly in English.
