Sailing in Greece

I am going to be chartering a boat for the first time in Greece. I have ICC and VHF license (RYA SRC). This will not be a discussion on what licenses I need to hold. I also own Heikell's Greek Waters Pilot.

I want to talk about more practicalities: i.e. for example on VHF, is it true that the Coast Guard doesnt monitor ch 16? (but only ch12?)
Is it common in Greece to pre-arrival in ports/marinas to check in?

We will be sailing in the Cyclades. No itinerary yet, any strong recommendations of bays/beaches to see? (i.e. I want to enter the Santorini crater from the North as apparently the entrance is beautiful.

Any other experiences chartering in Greek Islands that is worthwhile sharing?

Many thanks.
