I've been to Kastelorizo, Kythira, Limnos and Samothraki from this list (among the 20-odd islands here I have visited over the past 35 years of living here). Surprised that Thassos, Ammouliani, Tilos and Agios Evstratios don't feature.

I cycled round several of these islands in April last. Most can only be reached by ferry, so remain relatively quiet and unspoilt.
Anyone interested in doing something similar might be interested in my blog here...
