We had a fantastic day out to Symi. The cruise departed on time and the boat had excellent facilities. There was enough time to visit the monastery and then continue on to the port where we enjoyed a lovely seafood lunch. I would definitely recommend this cruise which was very good value for money.

Symi is very pretty with lots of restaurants and a tiny beach. Well worth the 20 euros or so that the trip costs from Rhodes. Being in a sheltered bay makes for a very hot day out, with little in the way of breeze. Take lots of water and take advantage of the air-conditioned shops!

just to wonder around this small harbour is worth the journey as well as the taverna under the tree

We took a full day cruise to Symi, with a quick stop at the monastery at Panorimitis, by booking from one of the many boat touts lined up on the main Mandraki harbour. With this particular trip you had to get a bus from Mandraki harbour to the departure port which is quite far away so make sure to be on time! Some smaller trips leave from Mandraki but the larger boats leave from the other commercial port that we left from. I think the Proteus that we took over to Symi is actually on of the scheduled car ferries so you can probably do the trip yourself cheaper, but it does mean getting over to the large departure port and that would be a fair old walk. The trip to Symi on the Proteus ferry takes around 1 hour 40 one way so be prepared to sit for a while, the ferry has a large indoor lounge and bar area and toilet facilities so you have all your needs catered for. Symi itself is a pretty, small island with lots of colourful houses spilling down the hillside, very photogenic so take your camera! It is set around a pretty little harbour and you can walk all the way to the tiny little beach. You can also buy the original symi sponges here, bit more expensive than elsewhere. It is well worth taking time to explore the back streets of the old town, with little restaurants and shops tucked into every nook and cranny, some looking like they will drop down at any minute! We had three hours on Symi which is about right, if you are thinking of climbing up the hill to see the church however you might cut it a bit fine to see everything. The trip also includes a brief stop at Panorimitsis, this island just has a beautiful monastery that you can quickly visit.

If you have 4 days or more in Rhodes you should definetely go!! Symi is a beautiful island. We went in july. The only negative thing was that it was very very hot and although we wanted to stroll in the small alleys of symi town...that was almost impossible. We strolled round the small harbour. The setting is fantastic. The slopes round it are covered with small houses painted in various pastel colours and all with Neo-Classical pediments - a reminder that 100 years ago this was one of Greece's most prosperous islands. Round the harbour there are also many small tavernas with basic greek meze. We had lunch in one - it was simple but delicious. In my opinion this applies everywhere you go in the Aegean!! Do try the local speciality - the small shrimps (apparently a local species). Apart from Symi Harbour the ferry also stops at the monastery of the Archangel Michael at Panormitis (on the south side of the island), which is a very sacred place for the Greeks! I am really glad we decided to go to Symi! Don't miss out! Its really worth it!
