At southern Thassos, where the calm and accessible beaches alternate with the wild and  rugged coastline and the sedate olive groves with the lustily pinewoods, the ring road passes by small windless gulfs.  One of those is the gulf of Thimonia.  Its inlet leads to a friendly sandbank, while on its sides dominate smooth rocky slabs that, at intervals, are shaded from tree branches, while they lean to mirror into the transparent waters.  At the top of the mountain raises the settlement with the traditional houses, the renovated huts and its blooming gardens.

In Thimonia is also an imposing monument dating from the archaic period, a cyclic tower, the largest across Thassos, with a diameter of 15 meters!  Its exact function is still unknown.
