Skala Sotiras is the harbor of the village Sotiras, which was constructed interior.
The next village on the trip is Skala Kallirachis.The harbor is similar to the harbors of Skala Rachoni and Skala Sotiras. But the harbor of Skala Kallirachis is the most beautiful of them. Follow now the direction of Skala Marion. If you pay attention, you will see a rock, which looks like the skeleton of the head from a horse. Take your time and stop at different vantage points. You will easy recognize them, as the small pavilions (made of stone) on the sides. From there you will have every time again a fantastic view to the coast and the blue sea. If you now want to take a bath, take the last turn-off to Skala Marion. After a few meters there is a beautiful bay at your left side.
Following the direction to Limenaria there is the second biggest city on Thassos. On a small hill, build directly at the harbor, there was the office of the firm Speidel. Behind the office you can see the ruins of the fabric. It is permitted to visit this place, if you want.
