Best couples activities
Spas at the hotel
There’s nothing quite like a couples’ spa to set the mood on a getaway for two. There are hotels across the island like the Sentido Thassos Imperial Resort that boast boutique spas of their own, each of which come with a wide range of treatments and a sauna and steam room to help you and your partner relax.
Adventurous diving trips
There are a couple of diving centres on Thassos, all of which will get you geared up and learning the basics of heading underwater. Next up, you’ll head out to open water on dive trips where you’ll find coral reefs teeming with sea life and colourful sponges.
Wine on the coast
Thassos was once particularly known for its wine production, before olive oil stole the limelight.
Nowadays, wine production is limited to little mountain towns, but that doesn’t mean you can’t sip a glass from an outdoor patio in your resort’s harbour. Glasses of the sweet brandy known as tsipouro are also common too, and excellent as an after-dinner treat.
Full island boat cruises
It’s one thing to explore Thassos on foot, but quite another to see it from afar on a boat cruise. Because the island is so small, it’s possible to loop around the island in a day-trip. On luxury yachts and tourist schooners, you’ll glimpse Thassos’ craggy coastline and candy blue water, pausing for snorkelling stints.
Cocktails at La Scala Beach Club
The La Scala Beach Club in Thassos Town is like something out of a luxury holiday brochure, peppered with hammocks, plush loungers and thatched umbrellas that line the shores.
There are cosy bean bags ringed around the pool and Balinese beds that were made for lazing. And cocktails – lots and lots of cocktails. If you’re looking for a place to relax with your other half, you’ve found it.
