3 Tips before arriving to Thassos island
#1. Make sure you know the exact location of your hotel.
It is very important for you to be informed about the exact location of the room you have booked. Unlike in the big cities, on the island’s villages there are no specific addresses for the buildings, therefore it would be a good idea for you to ask the owner for some details on how to reach your destination in advance. If possible, take the coordinates, too. This will save you some time, especially during the high season when the island is full of traffic. Just call the owner and ask for a few direction details. In case you miss it, however, don’t worry since the locals are more than welcome to help you.
#2. Download the time schedule of the ferry boats from both Ports.
There are two ports that serve the island of Thassos.
Keramoti - Limenas is the shorter, faster, cheaper, more popular and most frequent route with a journey time of just 40 minutes.
Kavala - Skala Prinos is the longer and slightly more expensive alternative, but it serves its purpose just as well. Depending on how you're traveling and where is your final destination, this route may offer you more convenience. The journey lasts approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Before you begin your trip, make sure you check which port works best for you. By visiting the following website http://dromologia-kavalas-thasou.blogspot.gr/ you can find all the information about both lines of both ports. This can help you organize your time properly.
