Things to do

Symi:

Discover the beautiful capital city of Symi, which shares its name with the island. Visit the Monastery of the Archangel Michael Panormitis, a Greek Orthodox Monastery on the island. The war memorial is also not to be missed. Stroll through town and visit the small boutiques that line the white-washed streets of Symi.

Panormitis Monastery:

The Panormitis monastery is located on the southern tip of Symi. The monastery sits in a beautiful location enclosed in a cove. The monastery is a large 18th-century building with the tallest baroque bell tower in the world. The building is in excellent condition, and additional structures have been added for tourist accommodations and amenities.

Symi Festival:

From July to September, the island of Symi puts on an open-air festival. This has attracted some of Greece's most well-known musicians for years, like Nana Mouskouri and Yannis Markopoulos. Musicians typically play on the main square in Yialos, the harbour in the town of Symi.

Symi Nautical Museum:

Visit the Symi Nautical Museum. The museum, founded in 1983, now resides in a neoclassical building near the shipyard. The museum includes many exhibits on sea life, but the sponge-fishing exhibit is of particular interest. Various weapons and gear are on display.

Saint George Bay:

This popular beach is secluded and only reachable by taxi boat (available from Yialos). The beach has a steep cliff that blocks sun starting mid-afternoon. The beach is truly pristine, without tavernas or facilities. Many tourists find it to be their favourite place.

Archaeological and Folklore Museum:

The Archaeological and Folklore Museum is located in the mansion of the Gianneski family. The museum, made possible by Ariadni V. Farmakidi and Sevasti N. Farmakidi, is a donation to the country of Greece. The museum exhibits pieces from the Classical, Hellenistic, and Roman periods, the Byzantine collection, and the Folklore collection

Weather in Symi

The weather on Symi is consistent with a Mediterranean climate. A phenomenon known as the Etesian winds, a wind system that is present in late summer every year, gives sailors pause during certain hours of the day. Western beaches are to be avoided at these hours. The island is otherwise sunny almost all year round, and reaches a high temperature of 30°C in summer. Winter temperatures dip down to 10°C.

Travel to Symi

The island of Symi can only be reached by ferry. Flights into the larger islands of Kos (KGS) and Rhodes (RHO) arrive daily from all over mainland Europe and the British Isles. From either of these islands, take a ferry to Symi. Car-carrying ferries and catamarans operate within the entirety of the Aegean Sea.

One of the rooms and bathroom is on one side of the courtyard whilst the rest of the house is on the other with the other two bedrooms upstairs so it's perfect for providing some privacy. The views are stunning but they do come at a price! We counted 530 steps up from the harbour so you certainly walk off all the good food. There are, of course, restaurants in Chorio but the house wouldn't really be suitable for anyone with mobility problems. The kitchen is well equipped although, to be honest, we didn't use it for much. We really enjoyed our stay and Agapitos was very kind, meeting us at the harbour and telling us all about the house. A great house for spending hours on the two terraces, looking at the views!

The house was as rustic as we had expected, decorated with traditional Greek glassware and artifacts ( some artwork on the walls would have enhanced the house we feel ) A little gritty on the surfaces due to the unsealed bare stone walls ( we had to sweep and dust a lot!).Sadly the one thing which really spoiled the holiday for us was the 200ft plus ship which was moored on the jetty ,for a few days, very close to us which kept its engines pulsing and lights on all day and through the night ,and prevented us from seeing the beautiful view across the bay. It seems that it s a normal occurrence for it to be there, so perhaps it may be good to check out with the manager before you book. However we did love our little house, Pedi Bay and indeed the surrounding areas : no need really to book a car for many days as there s not many roads, and the bus from Pedi to Gialos is great.A lovely special place in a beautiful setting.

The house is unbelievably charming, tasteful and located on the top of the small island which is the best spot to be! Bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms are fully equipped and clean (and, again, so cute that it'd be hard not to wake up in the greatest mood!). At our arrival, Lodovica, the owner, came to pick us up and brought us to the scooter rental agency, just after a refreshing glass of white wine by the harbour. She infact suggested to rent a scooter for our entire holyday before we arrived and I have to admit that it was the perfect solution to let us enjoy every single corner of Symi. Plus, as she knows tthe island very well, she gave us a lot of priceless advices like suggesting us to spend one day by a little beach (a jewel) where is possible to eat typical greek lunch surrounded by the smell of wild sage and a bunch of sweet goats..sunbeds and beach umbrellas were for free!! Well, me and my friend are still in contact with Lodovica, we are now friends and I look forward to going back there.
