It’s all in the name … Holidays in Golden Beach are holidays in sun-soaking heaven. A fabulous place for families and couples who just want to bliss-out by the sea, this is arguably the best beach on the island. And it’s a natural playground for activities under the sun.
Golden Beach holidays have all the ingredients for kids to build castles, and for grown-ups to get active with a wealth of watersports – so you can potter about on a pedalo, go sailing or windsurfing, get the adrenalin going with paragliding, or just wander along the water’s edge and enjoy the sports as a spectator.
At the northern end of a big bay, the village of Chryssi Ammoudia (that’s Golden Beach in Greek) is set back from the sea on a pine cloaked hillside. Along the main road running through the village, there’s a clutch of tavernas, a handful of bars and a mini-market … and that’s about it. But while summer holidays to Golden Beach are quietly secluded, they’re not isolated. Water taxis soon whisk you round the tip of the island to Thassos Town – for shopping, sightseeing, nightlife and eateries.
