Thassos is a large island with a circular shape in northern Greece, located less than 10km from the coast and measuring roughly 25km from north to south and the same from east to west. It has a population of approx. 3000 inhabitants and has been settled since the Palaeolithic period
The terrain of Thassos is mountainous and gradually rises to it's highest point, Mt Ypsario at 1200m. There are roads leading to the interior, but they are bad and require 4WD cars. The economy is nowadays mostly focused on tourism.
The main reason to visit Thassos are its beaches and the picturesque coastline. The few beaches are a mix of pebblestone beaches and sand beaches. The coastline is steep and rocky in many sections.
