Η Σκάλα Παναγίας είναι η μεγαλύτερη παραλία του νησιού. Απέχει 12χλμ από τον Λιμένα και 4χλμ από την Παναγία και βρίσκεται στην ανατολική πλευρά του νησιού. Η μία άκρη της παραλίας που είναι παραλία της Σκάλας Ποταμιάς ονομάζεται Χρυσή Αμμουδιά. Είναι δημοφιλής με ρηχά καθαρά νερά. Ονομάζεται Χρυσή λόγω των αχτίδων του ήλιου που αντανακλώνται στην άμμο. 

Η παραλία Θυμωνιά βρίσκεται στο νοτιοανατολικό τμήμα της Θάσου μεταξύ της Αλυκής και του μοναστηριού του Αρχάγγελου Μιχαήλ. Η απόστασή της από το Λιμένα είναι 32χλμ και 16χλμ από τον Ποτό. Είναι μια ήσυχη βραχώδης παραλία ιδανική για ψάρεμα. Δίπλα στην ακτή θα ανακαλύψετε έναν αρχαίο κυκλικό πύργο σε εντυπωσιακό ύψος με εξωτερική διάμετρο 15μ.
