Giola is situated 4km away from Astris. Its pristine water resembles a swimming pool carved into rocks.  The water’s temperature is warmer than the sea’s and is refreshed slowly by waves. You can take a swim, dive or sunbathe.


Thassos Mountainside

Ipsario is the highest mountain of Thassos with its top at an altitude of 1204m. Gentle mountain crests are spread under the forest roads.  The diverse vegetation adorns like a cloak the slopes of the mountain.
