Hi!

We are coming to Thassos, Potos in mid august and would like to rent scooters and drive around the island. How are the roads on Thassos? Is it safe to drive a scooter? Are there maps available of all the roads on Thassos?

Can't wait to get to Thassos!

Kathy

Hallo Kathy and welcome to this forum ! The main street around the Island is in very good condition and so you can drive with a scooter very well. In the middle of the Island, the condition of the streets are very difficult ...... so you must see. You can buy maps of the Islands and so of the streets of Thassos at the scooter-rental, but also in the most of the shops. A very nice holiday ! Hartmut

Hi Kathy,


nice to see you here!
you can rent scooters in Potos very well. The roads are well as Hartmut explained to you. But the maps of Thassos are not so well. I think you won`t need that card material. Simply ask the people for sightseeing objekts. Most of them speak english. If you like.. We are also in Potos in the middle of August. You can get in touch with me if you like!

Regards

Roads that are not on the common road maps are not suitable for scooters anyway! So don't hesitate, enjoy and - watch the road carefully: There might be little stones and sand especially in the eastern part of the Island (between Astris in the south and Potamia in the east).

And: Some bends are different form bends in Western Europe. You go in, and it goes out with another radius - that's a little bit strange.

Last hint: Don't forget your sun cream. I often see people (especially form GB) with shorts (and nothing else) on a scooter. Irresponsible! You get 100% sunburn doing like that! And it's no fun in case of accident as well.

Very last hint: You can hire good scooters from Giorgos in the shopping street of Potós, opposite the Smart Car Rental.

Kind regards

Volker

Also dont forget to wear a crash helmet

The main roads are great . We drove right the way round in an old fiat panda in a clock wise direction nice and slow to catch all the views.. No problem at all as there are hardly any junctions.

You will have a great time but dont drink and ride!
