The Greek island of Thassos is located in the northern Aegean Sea, close to the coast of Thrace and the plain of the river Nestos. It is approximately 7 km from the mainland and 20 km south-east of Kavala.

The Island is formed mainly by gneisses, schists and marbles of the Rhodope Massif. The highest elevation of Thasos is the Ypsario, at 1,204 m.

Upon opening the full image, another island, Samothrace, can be seen to the west of Thassos. The island is 17 km long and is 178 km2 in size.

It is the southernmost island and point in Greek Thrace. It is only a few kilometres west of the maritime boundary between Greece and Turkey.
