METALLEIA BEACHView on map
If you need a unique experience then visit the beach of Metalleia! It is from here that ore was processed and shipped off by the German mining company Speidel. Now you can wander amongst the old mine buildings where local and European artists have made art installations. The beach is mostly white sand with some pebbly parts. Metalleia is located just outside Limenaria, behind the famous Palataki building which overlooks Limenaria harbour.
Pefkari beach is very close to Metalleia and can be reached along the new footpath which runs between the main road and the coast. Metalleia is on the south side of the island, 42 km's from Limenas (Thassos Town), the capital of Thassos island.
