I recommend that you do some research then come back here and ask questions specific to your needs and budget. Be sure to state your daily room budget in euro _AND_ your travel dates.

Hi, my own favourite islands are Santorini, Rhodes, Mykonos and Crete. From Santorini there are ferries to Mykonos and Crete both and take a look at Ios as well because it is close to Santorini and you may want to visit it. Here is a website with info on all the Greek islands. Read and take your pick!

i was in Mykonos and Rhodes 2 years ago and have to say found both the islands very different from each other and utterly fantastic.

I have heard great things about Santorini and regret i did not get a chance to visit.

Skiathos is an amazing trip. Ferry from Agios Constantinos. It's not wild, but it holds it's beauty in a number of ways. Plus there is a great beach accessible only by boat(rent one or ride one).

Neither Mykonos nor Santorini are particularly good for families with small children, especially during high season. Beyond that, I wouldn't make a recommendation without knowing travel dates, etc.

While you're at it about adding essential data, sgh, would you please share not only your exact DATES of travel, but the time your plane lands, and your homebound plane departs?? This can very much affect our advice about going to/from islands in the most time-efficient way. Also, it can reveal for us whether you do indeed have 10 full days for your itinerary, or just 9 or 8 1/2 when you subtract international travel time.
