Greek Islands - Difficult decision on which ones to choose

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning to go to Greece in September, for around 30 days. We have already been to Santorini, Paros, Mikonos, Milos and Folegandros, so we would like to visit different islands this time. We have already decided to go to Crete and Rhodes, but I am really in doubt regarding which other islands we should include in our itinerary. We are a couple around 50's, we prefer small villages instead of crowds, nice and cozy hotels rather the large resorts and we enjoy having good food in unpretensious restaurants.

My first selection included Sifnos, Sikinos, Anafi, Koufonissia, Symi, Lipsi, Patmos, Ikaria and the Fourni Islands, Skopelos and Alonysos. Obviously there are more islands in this list than we can visit in one trip, specially considering that we will spend some time in Crete and Rhodes.

I would appreciate any thoughts that could help us to choose 5 or 6 islands of the list above, or maybe include some other ones I haven´t consider.
