Where is the Aqua Park Thassos?

You will find the Aqua Park Thassos Island is 400 meters from the scenic port village of Skala Maries. Contrary to what you might think if you hear of Aqua Parks, the venue is right in the ocean. Fortunately, it faces the west side of the island and is protected by the strong south and strong winds from the port and the natural landscape of the Faros peninsula in the area.

The nearest villages are Skala Kallirachi in the north, Limenaria in the South, and Maries in the east.

What floaties can you find in the Aqua Park Thassos?

What floaties can you find in the Aqua Park Thassos?

There are multiple floaties in the waterpark, and it is easy to walk or swim from one to another. If you want numbers, there are 7 gaming areas, with the most popular being the new addition of the bouncy floaty on the southern corner. Among others, you will find a swing, slides, obstacles, and my favorite, the trampoline.

How deep is the water in the Aqua Park Maries?

How deep is the water in the Aqua Park Maries?

The water in the Aqua Park Maries is between 3 to 4 meters deep, making the park one of its kind. Whereas other waterparks are on land, this aquapark is in the ocean, about 30 meters away from the sandy beach. Even though at 4 meters depth, the water is so clear that you can see the sandy bottom.

Fortunately, there is no maximum age restriction, so feel free to celebrate your fiftieth birthday on the watery slides of Aqua Park Thassos. If you don’t feel like it, remember that kids below six years of age may need to be accompanied, so you might as well give it a try!

Do you have to wear a life jacket to enter the Aqua Park Maries?

Yes, there is always a lifeguard on duty in the Aqua Park Maries. He usually sits on the western side of the waterpark, overlooking the kids and adults playing. Remember, his job is to interfere in case of imminent danger, and he is not a babysitter. So, if you’re looking for a guardian, you might want to accompany your kids.

GETTING TO AQUA PARK MARIES

How to get to the Aqua Park Thassos from Skala Maries

How to get to the Aqua Park Thassos from Skala Maries?

From the center of Skala Marion, you must walk or drive 300 meters to reach the Aqua Park Thassos. However, if you are on the southern side of the port with the car, you would need to do a 2-kilometer loop since the road between the taverns and port is one-way.

How to get to the Aqua Park Thassos from Limenaria?

How to get to the Aqua Park Maries from Limenaria?

Although you can follow the main coastal road from Limenaria to Skala Maries, taking the northern route through Kalyvia might save you from some traffic and even gain you a minute or two. The two paths are about the same length (8 kilometers), but the northern route is flatter and less twisty. It is no coincidence locals prefer it even if at some point you have to cross a short dirt road (PS: don’t be afraid to chat with the locals!)

About StayThassos

Stay Thassos Logo: the island of Thassos with an olive tree in the center
I am Dimi and this is a travel blog about Thassos Greece, my homeland. Although I grew up on this island for almost two decades, I decided to move and study abroad for six years. After Thassos, I lived in five different countries. During that time, I traveled to four continents and saw more places than I could count.

However, it was during the pandemic and my return to Thassos that I realized how lucky I am to call this island my home. And this blog is an effort to show you the beauty of Thassos. I hope you enjoy it :))
