The Island of Symi
Symi is a tiny island of the Dodecanese complex and only an hour ferry ride from Rhodes. What makes it special is its picturesque architecture and relaxing ambiance. The island’s main town offers marvelous scenery; brown and yellow houses constructed on the slopes of hills with fantastic views of the sea. Lovely villages and beaches can be reached within walking distance from the port, making the island ideal for hiking or cycling. Another interesting place to visit in Symi is the Monastery of Taxiarches, on the south part of the island, dedicated as the protector Saint of the locals.
Dining & Entertainment
When it comes to food, the island offers great dining options. One can taste fresh fish and seafood as well as various traditional dishes with the company of ouzo or raki. On the other hand, when it comes to entertainment, Symi does not have a vibrant nightlife. It is a more laid-back destination, and visitors come here to admire the island’s unique character that remains unspoiled. A few bars are scattered along the main town of Symi and in the greater area around it. It’s not boring but, not recommended if you are looking for a party destination!
Unique Experiences – Visit the Neighboring Island of Halki
Charter a private yacht and visit this tiny island of Dodecanese; Halki is a relaxing place for a day trip. Halki is a place to enjoy long walks and secluded beaches. The only town is Nimporio, a picturesque place that surrounds the main port of the island.

Holidays in Halki are ideal if you are looking for Greek islands off the beaten track.
