If you’re looking for your own slice of heaven, Symi holidays are for you. Just 23 miles north of Rhodes, this small island opens up with a charming harbour and Italian-style mansions sporting candy-coloured rooftops clustering up the hillside. Symi looks like a painting and feels like an oasis, making it a perfect holiday destination for all. Turquoise waters meet charming beaches, gourmet cuisine mixes with traditional nightlife and impressive heritage complements quaint, cobbled streets, making Symi a truly stunning Greek island.
Symi’s harbour is argued as the most beautiful in all of Greece, with steep cliffs rising on both sides, layers upon layers of beautiful 19th century pastel houses and numerous quaint cafés and restaurants. The town itself exudes an old Greece vibe, with dramatic narrow passages stringing old ruins and traditional tavernas together. The harbour and upper town are brought together by the famous Kali Strata, a spectacular stone-step street lined with numerous souvenir shops and cafés. Symi, with its effortless sophistication and timelessness, feels like the most relaxed place in the world.
