The Island of Symi

Symi's a great place to visit towards the end of the season when the hordes have gone home. I really don't think I'd be that impressed if I had to battle to get a table at a restaurant by the sea. We spent a week here and met up with some friends so it was a fairly chilled affair of doing not much at all which is exactly what we needed after a long and busy summer. You really don't need to leave the Yialos (the harbour) area at all if you choose not to although you'd be missing out if you didn't take the trip up the Kali Strata, which was, at one time, the only route up into the old village. It is still used now for donkeying up building materials to places that four-wheeled transpot can't get to. One thing people should be aware of though is that it is often a steep climb to reach your accommodation so if you are physically challenged in any way then this would be something you'd need to check out before booking.
