Oia & other islands

We are 2 American women, who are planning on celebrating our 60th birthdays & friendship of 46 years, by spending 2 weeks in Greece & the islands, this September. We really don't have any certain destination in mind, other than spending a few days in Oia. We enjoy smaller villages, rather than big cities & enjoy day trips, to the areas around the place where we are staying. We would like to visit 1 or 2 other islands but have no concept of what any of them are like or the transportation available to get us from 1 island to the other. A big consideration is that we wish to spend no more than 120 USD/night. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Ios, Naxos and Paros are nearby and easily reached daily by ferry, either slower open car ferry or enclosed highspeed catamaran depending on the island and the day of travel. There are other small islands nearby but they're not as easily reached, and certainly not on a daily basis. Check Folegandros, Amorgos, Anafi and Sikinos.

So many islands....so little time. Thank you for the suggestions. Will we have a difficult time staying within the $120/night limit? It looks as though we will be flying over the middle part of September.

No, that should get you something nice no matter where you go. Once you've made your final decision as to the islands you can google them to see what hotels are in which villages and go from there. I had a nice room on Paros in June for only 20 euro/night, so it just depends on what you want, where it is and what it has.
