Castle Thassos

The Village

The bay of Skala Potamia is on the Northeast coast of the island, sheltered below the twin villages of Potamia and Panagia. It has excellent road links and offers a regular bus service to the capital of the island, Limenas, and to the road around the island. This enables our guests to easily enjoy the highly-recommended tour of the whole island, so as to visit all of the beautiful spots and archaeological sites on the island.

In addition, there are numerous fine beaches – both sand and pebble – where you can fully relax and benefit from the clear azure waters and the warm sun of the Mediterranean. You may also wish to walk up to the summit of Ipsarion, 1204metres, and to marvel at the spectacular views that unfold before you – a panorama from Mount Athos right around to the island of Samothraki and the whole mainland coast in between!

Access to the island is facilitated by the regular ferry connections to the mainland – including a covered ferry for bad weather days. Only a 35 minute trip from Keramoti to the main harbour. There is also a flying dolphin between Kavala and the town centre of Limenas, which runs four times daily, and is only 45 minutes door-to-door.

Using the Castle Hotel Pontos as your holiday base will enable you to have the holiday of a lifetime, appreciating the origins of present Greek society by visiting the historic sites and by watching and participating in the festivals and traditions of today.
