Skala Rachoni, Thassos island, Greece

Skala Rachoni is a small and very slowly developing beach community. It has a spectacular Greek Orthodox Church, a number of small hotels nestled among the olive groves which border the coastline, and numerous family run restaurants serving fresh fish, local meat, and vegetable dishes. You'll also find a number of rather trendy cafe-bars and snack bars, which will amaze you with their background eclectic musical choices, as well as offering you a relaxing environment in which to enjoy your coffee, while gazing for hours out to sea.
It offers a large supermarket with a very extensive range of groceries and household goods, petrol station, regular, all year round bus service, tennis, beach and water sports, as well as the opportunity to stroll in and amongst the silver grey-green of the olive groves, which are abundant because of the mild climate in this part of the island.
It is a resort which will be appeal to those who want a quiet and relaxed holiday, with access to beaches literally on the doorstep. All the beaches are soft sand and provide beds and umbrellas for people to laze, read, play cards, write their memoirs or just people watch, relaxed in the knowledge that they only have to think about wearing beach clothes with perhaps a cover up for the evenings, and then contemplate the trip to town, 10 minutes drive, possibly once a week to catch up with the reality of the daily life in a small, busier Greek town.
