Glykadi is a small beach resort on the northern coast of Thassos, around 5km west of Limenas. The town itself is quite quiet with the odd cafe and shop. The main attraction to this place is definitely the beach where most visitors spend most of their time. It is the ideal summer destination for anyone who wants a peaceful getaway with guaranteed sunshine and not many crowds.

The best time to visit this resort is definitely the summer period as there isn’t as much to do when the temperatures start to cool down in the winter months. Temperatures usually reach the high 20s throughout the summer months whilst the period between autumn to spring drops to the low teens. Because Glykadi is primarily a beach resort, we definitely recommend you skip the winter months and stick to the busier and better summer period.

Glykadi Beach is a picturesque beach that is made up of mostly sand, although there are pebbles around the shore. The water is shallow and ideal for non-confident or younger swimmers to splash around and play in. There is an abundance of sea life in the waters surrounding Glykadi so be sure to bring your snorkel! During the summer period, there is a beach bar which rents out sunbeds and parasols. Apart from this, there aren’t too many facilities on this beach or in this resort.

Glykadi has a few accommodation options that are dotted along the coastline. Most of them are of a standard quality although you might find some on the more luxurious end of the spectrum. Villas and apartments are also popular ways of staying in the region. There is the odd restaurant and taverna in Glykadi but not a whole lot in terms of eating out. Your best bet is to either eat in your hotel complex or make the short journey to Limenas for a lovely evening meal.
