"A great place tp relax"

Overall Resort Rating:

Very Good

Open quote

Golden Beach is in our opinion the best resort on the island of Thassos. A glorious beach with the sand shelving gently into the lovely blue sea. A lot of typical Greek Tavernas and we can recommend Sotoris Taverna and Finikas Tavernas in Golden Beach itself. If you going to take the short walk to Skala Potamis Akrogialia Taverna is a small family run establishment which we thought was great.There are only a few shops here and a handful of low key bars. The surrounding scenery is magnificent.Best for couples who want a quiet and relaxing holiday

The beach is a short walk away and is lovely and sandy. You do have to pay for sunbeds ( 6 euro's ). We were told that some restaurants, let you use them, as long as you bought some drinks, or something to eat, which really works out the same.

"Great beach, good food"

Overall Resort Rating:

Very Good

Open quote

Golden Beach is for people who want a quiet and relaxing holiday. The soft sand shelves gently into the sea and is close to paradise. There is a good selection of restaurants and our favourites were Sortiris and the Magic Coast in nearby Skala Potamia, Night-life is very low key and the nearest cash machine is 2 miles away. The nearest chemist is taxi or bus ride away in Pagnia. Very few shops just peace and quiet. It is not really a resort for families.

The main reason for coming here is the wonder beach with soft sand sloping gently into the sea. There is a great selection of reasonably priced tavernas the best being Sortiris. Finikas is also worth eating at.There are very few shop apart from a couple of small supermarkets. The nearest chemist is in Pangnia a bus or taxi ride away. The nearest cash machine is 2 miles away. Credit cards not generally accepted here. Best for couples wanting a quiet and relaxing beach holiday.

Overall Resort Rating:

Average

Open quote

Early in the season over half the resort was not yet open, and there was lots of building work going on.We went primarily to walk, and the surrounding countryside is ideal for this. Unfortunately the local bus service had not been fully started so many of the walks could not be undertaken.

"Beach, olive groves and tavernas"

Overall Resort Rating:

Very Good

Open quote

Golden Beach is a resort rather than a traditional town. It has no heart but don't let that put you off if you are in search of traditional culture. There are plenty of traditional villages nearby such as Panagia and Potamia and Thassos town is just a 20 minute journey by bus costing only 4 Euros return. The beach at Golden Beach is wide, features sand dunes and very pretty particularly at each ends which merges into Scala Potamia with a small fishing harbour and tavernas selling sea food. The turquoise waters here are lovely.

The majority of buildings in Golden Beach and Scala Potamia appear to be modern, mostly low rise hotels, tavernas, souvenir shops, car hire centres and small convenience stores.

However they have a traditional feel overall thanks to the rural surroundings - olive groves and farms with vineyard lined allotments and overall a slow pace.

Nearly everyone we spoke to has been returning year after year. It's the unhurried, less stressful way of life that is probably the main draw.

"Grecotel Pella Beach"

Overall Resort Rating:

Very Good

Open quote

Golden sands. Great food. Non-stop sunshine. This hotel has got it all - and then some. From the moment you arrive, you’ll be in no doubt that this heavenly hotel will live up to your holiday dreams. Even the lobby is drop dead gorgeous. We’re talking elegant minimalism in shades of chocolate, vanilla and buttercup, with plump cushioned sofas just begging to be sat on. And upstairs, the rooms are every bit as lovely. It’s swish marble bathrooms, Mediterranean styling and sea views all round. Beautiful. When you’ve picked your jaw up off the floor, head outside to the pool. Holidays are all about taking it easy, and with this in mind, Grecotel Pella Beach have created a garden geared for relaxation. From sun-dappled terraces to luscious landscaping, it’s got laid-back living written all over it. Put your shades on. Sit back. And get ready for some serious R&R. Doing nothing can sometimes take all day but if anything can drag you away from your sunbed, it’s the food. From soups and starters right down to the desserts, everything on the menu is to-die-for. And Greek nights and fish festivals give you a taste of all things local. Delicious.

Super Resort for Chill out and the locals have got it right. The Golden Goose can only be encouraged not priced out and blamed for the decline in the Greek economy.

Well done guys.
