Greek island???

Hi, have been to a lot of Greek Islands but want to go to a very quiet relaxing one in September. Requirements for couple in mid 50's are: p&q, beaches, small taverna's, no Brits Abroad, tacky shops, hassle from locals, would like s/c in small complex near to beach, shops, tavernas and possible boat hire (def scooter hire). Was looking at Lefkas and Paxos but should we be looking at Alonnisos? Dont know where to start!!! Thank you

Hey and welcome JackieBarr:-) I have similar requirements and can certainly vouch for Alonissos in Sept.. would fit the bill nicely for what you are looking for;-) Check out www.alonissos.gr/

Skopelos would work as well .. www.skopelosweb.gr/ It's barely a 15 min boat ride between the 2 and where I head to in Sept to get away from it all;-) IMO, it's the best time.. doesn't get any better for swimming after the seas have been sun-kissed all Summer long;) Best.. and EnJOY!

Hi Jackie,

Have a look at Agia Efimia on Cephalonia. If it appeals come back for a few ideas on accommodation.

ticks all your boxes providing you are happy with beaches that are either pebbly or you sunbathe on rocks and step into the sea.

Happy planning
