Thasos - Lagoon Gkiola Lagoon Gkiola
Thassos beside the sandy blue beaches has coasts with rocky terrain. This results in beautiful formations, such as the lagoon of Gkiola. It is a geological phenomenon where sea water is trapped in a "pool" generated by a circular rock. The water is warmer than the sea and this makes swimming and diving very pleasant experience. The lagoon is between Limenaria and village Astris. From Limenaria heading to the village Astris will find the hotel Gases. After 100 meters you will find a sign "to Sirens". The road is unpaved but in good condition. After 2-3 kilometers (1,5-2 miles) you leave the car or motorbike in a open space and descend straight down from the cliffs to the sea, you will see arrows on the rocks that show the way.
