As a traveler I am never sure if it was geting a package holiday just to relax somewhere without any sightseeing or new experiences. Last year, I felt like trying to be a lazy tourist abroad and guess what, I got so lucky for a last minute booking. First time in Skiathos and I have to say I don't know if the 2010 summer will look like after the Greek financial crisis but the august of 2009 was magic. Great food but overpriced coffee. Great measurements in drinks and everywhere I would see happy faces.
Expect surreal moments like I experienced the Last Man Standing a drinking competition in a George's bar where someone Bouzalas guy I figured was somekind of local poker celebrity and won a lifetime supply of beer who later denounced after agreeing to his girlfriend nagging about his health. I remember once met an old guy who after talking in a rainy night outside the only Irish pub of the island about asking how would I bring my wife there who phoned me and wanted to join as she got bored alone in the room, this Vagos guy (or was it Gavos?) lent me HIS CAR KEYS to help me out.
An island with excellent beaches especially Koukounaries, Banana and Agia Eleni made it my best Greek experience, after my first time in Plaka of Athens last decade.
