Golden Beach is a wide beach of several kilometers length, located on the eastern coast of Thassos
. It is managed by the villages Potamia and Panagia
, as in the east part is the resort of Skala Potamia
and in the western part - the relatively new resort of Skala Panagia
. The rest of the beach is a free zone with scattered beach restaurants with sunbeds.
In Skala Potamia locals call the beach Chrissi Akti (meaning Gold Coast) and in Skala Panagia it is know as Chrissi Ammoudia (Golden Beach). The beach is predominantly sandy and relatively shallow. Some water sports and volleyball nets are available. The only disadvantage is that in July and August it gets crowded.
