Blue View

At the Blue View, sea views are a given. This family-run hotel comes with a good-sized pool that looks out over the water and a restaurant that specialises in well-portioned home-cooked meals.

By the oval pool, there’s also a circular option for children. The sunloungers are set to make the most of the views out to sea, but the surrounding gardens are the best places to head if you’re looking to relax away from the action.

Once a week, the owners put on a Greek night where you can watch traditional dancers.

Overview of Limenaria

At first glance, Limenaria looks like a quaint little village. But, although the pace of life is relaxed, it’s anything but quiet.

Bars and restaurants line the shore and make the best of the views out to sea. When you want to relax, the beaches are long and sandy. They’re also surrounded by dramatic cliffs, so the views are just as impressive behind you as they are out over the water.

When you want to explore, head inland from the Blue View. The stunning mountain terrain’s dotted with hiking trails, so you can trek high above the resort and capture some of the best scenery in Thassos.

Things to do in Limenaria

It’s easy to see how the Blue View got its name, as the turquoise waters are just across the road. There’s also a shingle beach here, so it’s easy to swap from the pool to the sea.

You’re also within walking distance of the centre of Limenaria. A top spot for any holiday to Thassos, Limenaria has plenty of character. When you want to relax down on the front, you’ll have great views of the surrounding islands and the distant mainland. But, when you want to see what the village has to offer, you’ll discover a working harbour, friendly tavernas and traditional souvenir shops.

A stay in Limenaria will show you the very best of traditional and unspoilt Greece.


Resort Summary

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.
