Giola, Island of Thassos, Greece

This summer I visited beautiful Greek island of Thassos. It was my first visit to Greece and I was very pleasantly surprised. The true gem of the visit was finding a place called Giola. These are the pictures I took there.

Beautiful pictures of Giola, Thassos

As you can see it is a beautiful natural lagoon, like a swimming pool carved into the rocks. Water is little bit warmer then outside sea which makes it extremely pleasant to swim in. Not many people know about it and it is extremely hard to get to.

Here is a video I made at the location.

    Hi Philip,

    It is nearly impossible to describe where Giola is. That's a good side to it, because very few people can find it and usually you can enjoy privacy while you are there. Your best guess is to ask someone in Potos to give you directions. Roughly, when you go from Potos to the east, around 5-7 km on the road you have to take a turn right on a dirt road, go as long as you can on it, then leave your car and walk around 500m towards the sea. Somewhere within the rocks Giola is hidden.

    I am glad that is so, although sometimes I get in a dark and pessimistic mood. Trying to cut on that, promise.

  16. Feb 25th, 2008 10:10 PM

    When you go from Potos east, about 10km. It's hard to explain get a local guy to describe it for you.

    It is 3-4 degrees warmer then the outside sea temperature. So 25-28 degrees. Makes you want never go out :)

    That's awesome, I'm going to have to visit there. Never seen anything quite like it before. Also how warm are we talking?
