Thasos ticks the right boxes if you’re looking for an island that combines fantastic beaches and fascinating ancient history so you can enjoy different elements of a Greek vacation in one destination. It's the northernmost Greek island and can be reached from Kavala airport on the mainland.

    This lesser-visited Greek island is a top pick if you’re looking for a more relaxed vacation far from the boisterous nightlife found on other nearby islands. Among the dozens of beaches and sandy coves, the finest include Saliara Beach (also known as Marble Beach) and the aptly named Paradise Beach.
