Where to stay for 10 days next June ?

We are planning to spend 10 days on the island next June . We are trying to decide whether to stay in one place or both skopelos town and Glossa ( or even somewhere else ) We will be sea kayaking for a few days , but in between would like to do some walking, exploring and maybe even bikes for a day ( if it's not too steep ) . As a place to stay we love to be have access to a good selection of nice tavernas for dinner , ideally with lots of Greek culture . We are not interested in beach resort type places , but don't mind a swim .

Hey and welcome Aussiealison:-) If not into a beach stay, then you've narrowed it down perfectly.. Glossa will certainly offer you a bit more of a more mellow traditional feel.. way more limited cafes/tavernas, but those that are there are fantastic.. and the views from the village are magnificent;-) The working port fishing village of Loutraki just below is easy to get to as well for some additional taverna options.. and do note that this is a lush/green, hilly/mountainous isle.. I've seen bikers on the isle and am always amazed at how they endure;-) As far as hiking, you're in paradise;-)

Of course, Skopelos Town itself will offer the most in variety.. so you can do a split if you so wish.. the run between Loutraki on one end of the isle and Skopelos Town is about 36 kilometers.. the bus takes about an hour to do the run.. with a rental, you can cut that time in half.. passing some magnificent beaches to include Stafylos, Agnondas, Panormos (kayaking available here), Mylies, Kastani, Elios/Hovolo;-)

If you haven't already, take a look at www.skopelosweb.gr/ which offers some good general isle info from beaches to places to stay;-) You've picked a gem of an isle;-) Happy planning.. and EnJOY!
