Yearly Greece visitor looking for different island

Jump to last reply

Hi all- I am a 26 year old female (unmarried, no kids) who frequents Greece (usually islands) just about every summer and I am looking for a new island to visit this September (first week of sept). I have been to Mykonos, Santorini, Crete, and Rhodes multiple times but would like to try a new spot. I am looking for an island with beautiful beaches, decent nightlife, and accessible by plane since this year I only have 8 nights to spend there. I will stay on the same island all 8 nights.

I was considering Skiathos. But I am looking for other suggestions or if you've been to Skiathos, would you recommend it? My vacations are typically spent sleeping in til noon, sipping cold cocktails on a beach all afternoon, and evening hours out for long dinners and ending the night with a drink or two (or three :) ) at a cafe or bar with good tunes and good vibes (I don't need crazy nightlife, but I'm also not opposed to it). This trip I'm mainly seeking beaches with that turquoise water and light sand. Sounds like a silly request, but as many of you know, Greek island beaches are very diverse and range from the gorgeous Elafonisi to the black sand of Perissa).

Thanks for all input and opinions. My budget is pretty open. I like to splurge ***IF*** a hotel or restaurant is worth splurging on, if not, I love a good deal and I value quality--which could be a small, charming family run b&b type spot, -or- a sexy boutique hotel if it has good reviews. Thanks guys :)
