Resort Summary

Skala Prinos is an area of pine-covered mountains set against the clear blue ocean. Besides a few hotels and apartments on the seafront, it remains untouched by fellow tourists enjoying holidays to Thassos. This authentic village makes for a stress-free resort with the added bonus of experiencing traditional, rural life.

Spend your days relaxing on the beautiful white coastline taking advantage of the beachside tavernas or take a stroll down to the port and watch all manner of sea vessels being repaired, or wooden boats being made by hand, in one of the last traditional shipyards of Greece.

During the day there are beautiful areas of nature to discover which can be explored on foot, bike or horseback. Hiring a car is a great option if you want to see the entire island, which can be looped in around a day. Skala Prinos also holds a local market each week selling local delicacies and crafts.

Evenings in Skala Prinos will see you enjoying leisurely dinners at local tavernas where you can sample authentic Greek cooking and taste exquisite local produce. The resort offers a couple of small bars but this certainly isn’t the place to be partying from dusk till dawn. For late nights out, Thassos Town offers a good selection of cocktail bars, as does the coastal town of Skala Potamias.
