Skala Potamia is a very popular beach resort located almost 15 kilometres from Thassos Town and about 32 kilometres from Skala Prinos.
The beach stretches along a bay on the Northeast side of the island that is surrounded by a spectacular chain of wooded mountains including Mount Ipsario, the tallest mountain on Thassos that soars 1204 meters, or 3950 feet above sea level. The bay offers
over two kilometres of sandy beach with few small areas of rock and pebbles.
The overwhleming majority of Golden Beach is pure white sand, very fine and perfect for children to play and build sand castles with.
