A seductive mix of old, new, peaceful and lively, holidays to Potos perfectly balance lazy days and festive nights.
Potos is one of the most charming seaside villages on the southern coast of Thassos
, a Greek
island in the North Aegean
sea. From the cobbled streets to the local beach, the whole place has an easygoing feel to it. Come sunset, the music turns up and the town gets ready for a good time.
Pick of beaches
If you're looking for a beach that's a hive of activity – think watersports, beach bars and loungers – then Potos Beach's 200-metre stretch of sand and shingle's your go-to. For peaceful seclusion over hustle and bustle, just drive five minutes to Psili Ammos – a paradise of white sand and shallow waters.
Landmarks and legend
If you're wondering where you can find a cosmopolitan bar scene coupled with historical delights, look no further than the island capital, Thassos Town
, which is a scenic 45-minute drive up the western coast. There's an ancient Greek acropolis and an amazingly preserved amphitheatre – and you can't skip a visit to the legendary sanctuary of Pan.
