  St. Nicholas' Bay, Symi
by steventilly

We loved it here. It's around the headland from Pedi bay, and you have to follow a very rocky path up and over the hill that seperates them. The path is marked with red dots painted onto the rocks, so you shouldn't get lost. There's quite a little scramble down to the bay from the top of the hill, but that was good fun.
The bay itself is typical - coarse sand, taverna, crystal clear waters, beatiful surroundings... It was like heaven on earth.
Only one thing to watch out for though - goats! They'll be into your bag and stealing your picnic if you don't watch out!
We caught the water taxi back from here to Symi, which was a lovely ride, and only 2.5 euro! (Most water taxis are more than that).
