Skala Potamia

Skala Potamia is a popular summer resort on the island of Thassos and borders Golden Coast Beach, the southerly end of Golden Beach, which is in this fabulous sandy blue bay, surrounded by the spectacular deep grey granite mountains, clad in bright green of the pines, the silver grey of the olive groves, and the deep green of plane trees. Right behind, one can see the highest peak on the island, Ipsarion, at a breath-taking height of 1,204 m.

Golden Coast Beach together with Skala Panagia's Golden Beach is about 2 1/2 kilometres long, mostly fine golden sand, with a few narrow pebbly stretches.

In the past, these two beaches were separated by areas of sand dunes and a small river, but now they constitute one long and deep swathe of sandy beach, which is the pride of the Aegean, and indeed of the entire Mediterranean.
