About Symi - presentation, information, photos and recommendations

Symi is located in the Southern Dodecanese, north of Rhodes and close to the coast of south-west Turkey. Symi is just over 13 km north/south and about 8 km east/west with an area of some 68 square km.

Symi is an island that has a little bit of everything: beautiful surroundings, nice taverns and wonderful waters. You come here to relax, but it is not one of those islands where time stands completely still. It has quite a lot of visitors every summer, but has remained genuine to a great extent. The people on Symi live off tourism, fishing and some farming.

There are watersports, as well as excellent waters for snorkelling and fishing. You can also take daytrips to Rhodes.
The beaches on Symi are a bit stony, but the waters are beautiful. Many consider the best beach to be Pedi, with its beautiful surroundings. There are also boat excursions where you are taken to some of the more inaccessible beaches.
You'll find a couple of bars in Ano Symi and Gialos, but the nightlife is quiet and relaxed (except in August).
The taverns on the island serve traditional Greek food. Try some small dishes, mezedakia, and enjoy the local wine. Most places are in the harbour Gialos and Ano Symi.
Traditional handmade things like ceramics, textiles and sponges. A nice souvenir is also some of the local wine or sweets.
