The quaint village of Limenaria offers the usual charm of holidays to Greece with an array of harbourside restaurants, shops and bars. This large yet peaceful resort boasts wide, sandy beaches surrounded by dramatic red rock cliffs, while the stunning mountainous terrain is scattered with pine and olive trees.
Nestling in its own private valley in the southwest of Thassos, Limenaria is the second biggest settlement on the island after the capital Thassos Town. Its size means it can cope with tourists but not feel too crowded.
The unspoilt village offers dramatic views of neighbouring islands and the distant mainland. A holiday in Limenaria will see you experiencing original Greek culture and architecture and feasting on fantastic, fresh, traditional local cuisine.
Limenaria is the perfect spot to unwind and absorb the simplicity of the local way of life, which hasn't changed for many years. Everything in the town is within walking distance and you'll find a wide selection of tavernas offering fresh, homemade dishes. The beautiful working harbour with gorgeous views of the Aegean Sea is lined with restaurants offering freshly caught seafood and local delicacies.
The holy mountain, Mount Athos, towers over the historic village alongside one of the most beautiful monuments, Palataki – the ancient, deserted palace. For a slice of history, the folklore museum exhibits customary tools and utensils, traditional costumes, photos, ceramics and more.
