Hi,

I'm afraid that your question is too vague to answer, considering the vast number of Greek islands, and without knowing a bit more.

I would narrow things down a bit first by researching which you can fly to directly (if that is, in fact, what you would like to do from your local airport(s).) No point suggesting places that are not practical for you to get to.

it'd be good to know if there any sorts of things you'd like to get out and about to do, or if it's just a beach holiday you're after. If you want to get out and about, will you hire a car, want to go on organised excursions, or are you happy to get a local bus.

Also, late September is rather end of season in some places, so nightlife might be tailing off a bit (what sort of nightlife...bars and restaurants?). Late September weather can be a bit patchy in some islands that are more northerly, so southerly islands have the best chance of great weather.

Do you want a sandy beach, or doesn't it matter?

Crete is the most southerly, also Rhodes, which you're likely to be able to fly to. I would think? Crete has two international airports, Heraklion and Chania, and is a huge island. Worth checking which you can fly to/from, and if it's both, maybe which are the better costs (if that matters) and best flight times to suit you.
