Emerald Studios

Set in a 400-year-old olive grove, Emerald Studios is a modern self-catered resort with excellent views over the town’s award-winning beach and framed by rolling green hills. Golden Beach is just a five-minute walk away, so you’re in the perfect place to enjoy the beach and the town. On-site is a pool, a pool bar and a small bridge joining two relaxed sunbathing areas. All the rooms have balconies or terraces with unparalleled sea views, thanks to the hotel’s slightly hilly location.

Overview of Golden Beach, Thassos

To make the most of your holidays to Thassos, stay at Emerald Studios in Golden Beach. As you can guess from the name, Golden Beach is famous for its 3km stretch of soft, golden sands with Blue Flag status. These sands roll into shallow, warm waters perfect for paddling and swimming. And when it’s time to eat, the beachfront tavernas will deliver food straight to your comfy sunlounger. On the east coast of Thassos, Golden Beach is a laid-back town surrounded by pine-covered hills. As you explore the town, you’ll find traditional tavernas and friendly bars, and if you want to head somewhere more lively, Thassos Town is only a 20-minute trip by water taxi.

Things to do in Golden Beach, Thassos

Emerald Studios is the place to stay if you want to get the most of Golden Beach. Being such a short walk from the sands, you can spend all day on the coastline. Golden Beach is Thassos’s biggest beach and one of the most popular, too. If you don’t want to simply sunbathe, there are watersports galore to try, including jet-skiing, banana boating, kayaking, parasailing and windsurfing. And thanks to the clear waters, the snorkelling is brilliant. During the evenings, unwind to softly played guitars in Golden Beach’s coastal tavernas. If you want a more active nightlife, head to Skala Potamia or Thassos Town. Potamia is worth exploring: it’s in the foothills of Thassos’s biggest mountain, so you can follow the hiking paths as far up as you want. Or the best way to get to know the island is on horse back. Thassos is filled with charming tavernas, quaint towns and long beaches. If you want some rest and relaxation, head to Golden Beach – lazing on its soft sands is the best way to unwind.
