Which Greek island to choose?

Hi, wanting to spend a week on Greek island early July.

Been to Naxos and Crete. Liked both. But quite different!

Wanting..

Nice beaches/sandy coves. Somewhere to chill out and catch some rays.

Nightlife (within reach) celebrating girlfriends 30th so we want some good bars etc. but we're over the 'shot-downing' days...

So not full on, Faliraki style.

Tavernas on the waterfront... (one thing I LOVED about Crete...sitting at the waters edge, yamming in my Greek food..sea splashing right next to me...aahh)

Something still reminisant of Greece tho.

Was thinking

Skiathos

Thassos

Kefalonia

Zante

Kos

or even back to Crete...

Open to all suggestions!

(confused myself with reading too many reviews!)

Thanks to anyone who may offer some real advice. ITs tough...

I would suggest Skiathos it is a wonderful friendly little island you could stay in Skiathos Town or the other resorts that are nearby we were there 3 years ago and going back this year we are staying in Troulos they have wonderful beaches too.Highly recommend this island and it is so handy to island hop with Skopelos and Alonissios nearby brillant.
