Golden Beach or Skala Potamas

I've seen differing suggestions about the two places with some saying Skala Potamas is very iively which wouldn't be what we are looking for. My favourite island has always been Lesvos but looking for somewhere else that we will love just as much. Any advice please?
Skala Potamia is more lively than the other end of Golden Beach (Skala Panagia) although that end is changing from what is was. Have a look at my four trip reports with photos in the Tourist reviews section on the left handside of this page. There will be quieter resorts at Skala Ranchoi and Skala Prinos but personal choice if they suit. Also depends on what time you go as August will be busy in most resorts.
Mid to late June is a great time to go to Thassos because everything is open and alive (restaurants, tourist shops, services, etc.) but without the big crowds of the high season (July and August).
Hiring a car is totally worthwhile, especially since this is your first time going to Thassos. You should explore the several unique faces of the island and discover which is your favorite. One visit certainly won't be enough... but that's ok, you'll just need to take another holiday and pick up where you left off, the way everyone else does it!
