Saliara

Indescribable thing made of wood

Saliara

Saliara is a beach on the east coast of Thassos, about 5 km south of Makryammos. It is called the Marble Beach and this name has not come by accident - because of the white sand and white marble pebbles on the sea floor, the water has a unique white-blue color and reminds of the water on the shore of a tropical island. Even in the hottest days the sand is cool because of the small marble pieces in it. These marble pieces came from the quarries above the beach.

Saliara used to be a hidden beach known to few people but it is not a secret anymore, although still accessible via dirt road. In order to get there, you must first find the entrance to Makryammos Hotel and Bungalows, located on the beach of Makryammos. Next to the entrance you will see a dirt road, take it. The road continues for about 5 km but you need to drive slowly because there are some big holes at places, and the road is covered by white dust from the quarries (be aware that this dust will cover all of your car and hide its real color). There are no deviations and after a while you will see Saliara from above. You will forget about the off-road as soon as you see the water.

There are sunbeds and parasols to rent which occupy the entire beach. If you follow the road after Saliara, in 500 meters it will lead you to another small marble beach called Porto Vathy.
