Offering a laidback nightlife scene, easy access to the capital and three kilometres of family-friendly sand, Golden Beach holidays really do glitter.
This relaxed resort on Greece
's North Aegean
island of Thassos
has a scenic east coast that's all about the sandy, pine-backed beach. It's a real stunner, running the full length of the bay's clear waters. Add friendly bars and tavernas – some that deliver cool drinks and crispy calamari directly to your sunlounger – and it’s easy to see how this spot earned its glowing rep.
If you’re looking for casual evening ambience rather than full-on party vibes, Golden Beach will check all your boxes. Pitch up at one of the rustic waterfront restaurants for delicious local specialities and a glass or two of Greek wine as the sun sets.
For a spot of culture in between beach bronzing, jump aboard a water taxi to historic Thassos Town
. Here, you'll find old-world Greek temples, an acropolis and an ancient hilltop amphitheatre with an incredible ocean view. There's also a charming old port and a marketplace for picking up something fresh.
