|Thassos, with the crystal-clear blue waters
Today, Thassos is a part of the Kavala prefecture and is the southernmost and the easternmost points in the prefecture. Under local government reform in the late 1990s, the entire island became a single municipality.
Thassos is served by ferry routes to and from Kavala and Keramoti. The latter is a port at the eastern portion of the prefecture, close to Kavala's airport, and has the shortest possible crossing to this beautiful touristic area. The construction of hotels and roads, the frequent service with ferries and flying dolphins, contribute in the economical development of the island.
Gradually, Thassos began to regain its previous glory and once again turned into the wonderful paradise that Constantine Mellas and many Greek and foreign writers, poets and travelers have written about.
