Alyki

Alyki, Thassos Alyki, Thassos

The majestic natural scenery of the twin coves of Alyki remains timelessly prominent as a tourist symbol of Thassos. Along the indented coastline, a rocky peninsula full of pine trees emerges from the turquoise sea. It is connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of land forming, on either side, the famous coves of Alyki.

Here lie the remains of the ancient quarry whose famous snow-white marbles had been carved by experienced sculptors and then embellished cities from Classical Athens to the most far-flung corners of the Roman Empire. On the far western end of the peninsula, we can still peer into the crystal waters and discern the remnants of the quarrying process of this well-known rock.

The south cove hosts in front of its coast the remains of ancient temples dedicated to the Dioscuri and Apollo. The tourist center of the area, however, is the west cove with a fully-organized beach, very popular fish-taverns and a mini-market.
