Limenaria (Greek: Λιμενάρια) is a village on the island of Thasos in northern Greece.[2] The village numbers 2480 residents (2011 census) and is the second largest settlement on the island of Thasos. The settlement is a popular tourist destination since the 1960s, with a 1.2 km long strand of beach (Stelakis Beach) and a number of smaller coves and pebbly beaches just to the west of the settlement next to the village of Trypiti (Τρυπητή), being the main tourist magnet for the locality.[3] The village is also popular for tourists around the island for a visible view of the Holy Site of Mount Athos.[4][5]
