The feeling of the golden sand of the beach will not let you forget the child inside you, as playing in the sand is a desire and a summer habit of young and old. Water sports services and activities are provided at the famous beach of Golden Beach.
A magical location as it combines the wild beauty of the highest mountain in Thassos, Ipsarion (1203 meters). The intense vegetation of the place does not leave you even for a minute to get used to the indescribable beauty of the pine green in combination with the blue of the sky and the sea.
