Best baby friendly Greek Islands

Hello

We are thinking of taking a 2 week holiday to Greece with our baby who will be 15 months in June. Could anybody recommend a few baby Friendly Islands and resorts please? We are keen to go somewhere with lots of options to take in culture, beautiful historical sites as well as accessible beach and good dining out options. We also prefer more local areas than the big busy resorts. Thank you!

Greece is a very family friendly country, good choice. Will it be package or diy?

Preferably DIY as we would potentially like to island hop (as much as one can with a baby in tow!)

Ydra and Spetses and Poros (close proximity to Athens all three of them can be navigated on foot or via speedboat)

Andros, Tinos (close to Athens too, nice and easy to approach beaches, Andros offers museums and art galleries scattered across the island, Tinos is somewhat like a pilgrimage site for religious Greeks,so loads of churches and Monasteries)

The whole of Crete too, though, in order to see the island you might as well forget about visiting other islands, because it is quite big and diverse, but still easy to navigate (esp. if you have a car to your disposition) but what you will be treated to is amazing beaches, nice villages, loads of ancient sites (dating back to the Minoan period), exceptionally good food and the uber-hospitable mentality (to the point of them being misunderstood) of Cretans

Oh wonderful this is so helpful-I remember going to Poros when I was very little so would be fun to revisit! I will check out the other islands too work out a plan. Thank you so much! :-)

Hi Duke Zappa

Where would you recommend to stay on Crete? I stayed at Ag Nikolaos as a child-but wondering where would be a good base for a 2 week holiday where we can get around the island with public transport plus a car for part of the holiday? Would be keen to visit historical sites but also pretty villages and take in the local life.... Away from the big touristy resorts. Any tips would be most welcome, thank you!

Would recommend Heraklion, since it is in the middle of the island and has connections to (almost) all points in the island
