Thasos Island (Greece) cruise port Thasos

Thasos is Greece's northernmost island and country's 12th largest by area (approx 380 km2 / 145 ml2). Thasos is served by local ferries with regularly scheduled daily crossings to/from Keramoti (near Kavala International Airport). Scala Prinos is approx 20 km (12 ml) south of Thassos and is served by ferries to/from Kavala.

The island is round-shaped, without peninsulas or deep-water bays. The landscape is mountainous, not rugged, gradually rising from the coast with highest elevation point (Ipsario) 1205 m (3953 ft) above sea level. Pine forest covers much of the eastern slopes.

Island's principal port and largest town is also named Thasos (officially Limenas Thasou / Port Thasos). The port is on the northern coast, opposite mainland Greece and approx 10 km (6 ml) from Keramoti. Thassos is famous from ancient times for its thermal baths, making it a balneoclimateric resort area. Island's current economy is based on timber, olive oil, honey and marble (quarries). Tourism is also a major industry, but not so developed as on other Greek islands.
