Dasilio Prinou is the perfect pace to spend your holidays in the beach and between the pines. Prinos has wonderful, long, sandy beaches and a sea with emerald color. Fortunately in spite of the large number of hotels the beaches are not still crowded, and always you can discover a lot of shells and interesting sea plants along a beach walk.


Kazaviti
Kazaviti is the oldest village of Prinos and is hidden between the forest and the mountains. The buildings of Kazaviti are under protection due to their traditional architecture. The village was abandoned for many decades and it has been re-discovered just at the 80's again. Maybe this is the reason that still keeps its originality. It is a must to visit during your holidays in Thassos.

Aliki

Off the east side of the island there is a small rocky islet that was once called the HOLY ROCK. Today is an abandoned settlement which becomes alive with the first tourists with a dreamy beach, taverns and archaeological interest. It is a must to be the, to swim at the crystal waters, and to eat fresh fish at the taverns. A small tour at the ruins of Aliki, at the palace and the churches is also a must.  
Aliki was used for worship from 7th century BC.  A sanctuary was built on it.  It was in constant use up until the Christian era, when two basilicas were built on the highest part of the rock.  
 On the rock’s Eastern Shore stood a sanctuary dedicated to the savior gods, possibly the Dioscuri, who protected ships and sailors on their voyages.    The ruins of the sanctuary can be seen.  The buildings date back to the 5th and 6th centuries BC.
