People-watching and party-going

The cobbled, narrow streets of the lively old fishing village of Potos are lined with shops, restaurants and bars. Evenings see the pedestrianised roads filled with visitors. You can lose yourself in one of the many souvenir shops selling local goods, people-watch as you sip on a cool drink or tuck into some delicious local cuisine at one of the many Greek tavernas.

On the bustling beach you'll find rows of sunloungers and umbrellas all catered for by the cafes lining the seafront, providing an endless supply of cold beverages and snacks. In the surrounding areas there are countless more strips of sand ensuring you find your own perfect patch along the golden coastline.

Potos is a lively place during the day but even more so once the sun has set. The resort enjoys a busy nightlife with the younger crowds spilling out of clubs and cocktail bars until the early hours. For a more authentically Greek evening, enjoy a leisurely dinner in one of the many family-run tavernas, sampling the delicious fresh cuisine and warm local hospitality.

For those that prefer exploring to relaxing on the beach you'll find a plethora of adventure activities in the area, from fishing to horse riding, hiking to learning to dive.

Try a new watersport

Potos beach offers a wealth of watersports from jet-skiing to banana boats while the more daring can try a parachute ride for a birds-eye view of the stunning coastline.

The beach is also home to a popular dive centre offering beginner courses and the chance to explore the rich marine life on the rocky sea bed. It's possible to hire a boat, or catch one of the regular organised boat and fishing trips if you'd prefer a guide out at sea.

Beaches, beaches, everywhere

The popular beach of Potos stretches in front of the town centre, showcasing clear, shallow water. The seafront is well stocked with sunloungers, umbrellas and little beach tavernas offering light snacks and cold drinks.

Those who choose Potos for Thassos All Inclusive holidays will be pleased to hear that you don't need to travel far to make the most of the surrounding area, either. Close by you'll find the neighbouring beaches of Agios Antonios, Psili Ammos and Pefkari, which are all well-serviced and enjoy fine sand and calm water. To escape the crowds try the peaceful Rossogremos beach, which enjoys stunning vistas with trees shading its white sand.

Jump in a 4x4

If you like adventure, there is no better way to explore the inner island than on an exciting 4x4 safari trip. Go cross country through amazing valleys and deep green forests as your informed guide explains the spectacular landscape, showing you many hidden gems such as Lake Marion or the waterfalls of Apostolous. It's also possible to hire your own small scrambler in Potos and explore the island at your own pace.

Dance the night away

There is a reason this small resort is popular with the younger crowds on Greece holidays – as the sun goes down, the lively town begins to turn things up a notch. Along the cosmopolitan beachfront you'll find an array of nightclubs offering colourful cocktails with DJs pumping out mainstream hits. Check out the popular Tutti Frutti Beach bar where you can spend the night dancing on the sand.

For a quieter evening, the area is also host to many peaceful wine bars and bistros. For some serious relaxation head down to the Marley Beach lounge bar and sip sweet Thassian wine on the beach, under the stars.

Sample fresh Greek cuisine

The Greeks are renowned for their culinary skills and Potos is brimming with authentic tavernas and restaurants waiting for you to sample their delights. Tuck into traditional dishes on the beach, surrounded by palm trees, at the San Antonio Beach Restaurant. Or head to the idyllic beachside setting of Taverna Poseidon and feast on a fresh seafood platter. Finish your meal off with some sweet Thassian wine, a glass of ouzo or the locally produced equivalent, tsipouro.
