Both look nice. town looks slightly more commercialised on skopelos (downside for me) then skyros town. beaches sandy on skyros (plus) yet somehow skopelos beaches and surrounding scenery look more attractive from pics I can find. On other hand skyros looking quicker and easier to get to at short notice right now.
Any body any more info / views.
P.s. please also see my other post yesterday with questions re skyros.
I may also take another quick look at possibility of evia, naxos or lesvos (decisive as ever! Wish I never started researching, saved time and just went back to Ikaria where been before! But i've opened the can now! thanks for any help!
