Traveling to Greece

I am traveling to Greece with a few friends. We are expecting to do visit the islands- staying in Santorini and Mykonos but would like to take a few excursions off the path to other islands. Any suggestions or hidden gems we should see?

From Mykonos you can take an excursion to Delos. From Santorini you can go to Thirassia. Going further away from these islands might mean spending the night before you can return.

There are something like 600 inhabited Greek islands. Which would you like to see would depend on what you are interested in don't you think? Since you have said nothing about your interests, how would you expect anyone to suggest any?

You also do not say how much time you have to work with. Don't you think that would influence what people might suggest? There is no point in someone suggesting Crete for example if all you have is one free day after SAntorini and Mykonos.

Folegandros is beautiful with some stunning views. We stayed in the main town which you can reach by bus from the port. You can get to the island by ferry from Santorini. Not a day trip though. Most of the islands are too far from each other for day trips. Delos is a good idea, it's a short ferry ride from Mykonos. We did it as a half day trip, paying for the ferry at the port, then paying entrance to the island separately. You can probably book a tour if you wanted.

If you want another island to stay on and split your time amongst 3 islands, I can suggest Naxos. It's in the same ferry grouping as Mykonos and Santorini.

So are dozens of other islands amazing. So on what are you basing the comment that Folegandros should be suggested to the OP over other islands?
