Hi,

Paros and Antiparos, both of which are very close to each other. However, the latter doesn't have an airport.

Hi,

Yup, Cephalonia & Zakynthos OR Cephalonia & Lefkas OR Cephalonia & Ithaca.

From Ithaca you would need to return to Cephalonia to fly to Athens but it's only a 30 min ferry.

paros and antiparos are indeed perfect..although you don't mention eactly when you are going,which can be important..for example heidmall who has been in antiparos many times says it's lovely in may-june for example but too crowded in august..

you can fly to paros from athens and fly from paros to athens..the paros-antiparos ferry can take as little as a few minutes anyway,so the transport between the two is not significant..so you can go athens-flight to paros-ferry to antiparos-ferry to paros-flight to ahtens ..

oh and paros sounds perfect it fits your description for the ideal island,,and it does have long sand beaches for sure (chrisi akti and pounda from the top of my head-of course pounda in high season is a party beach,so ,again,timing is important)..the antiparos part will be for a more relaxed feeling,so it's a good combination
