Fast Boat To Symi with a swimming stop at St George's Bay! (Only 1hr journey)

87 reviews
The only high speed boat operating the Rhodes-Symi route which means that finally, you don't have to spend half of your day on a boat to get to Symi Island! With a late departure (10:00) and only one hour journey time, this brand new boat offers an exhilarating journey and then three hours freedom to explore the island of Symi and its secrets. <br>Symi, Greece is one of the most picturesque and charming islands of Greece.<br><br>The most impressive spot on the island is hands down Symi port. The hill above the port is packed with crayon-like mansions which emit a fairytale-like charm. Not to mention that any corner of the town boasts a magnificent view of the Aegean Sea. The unique atmosphere of the port will bewitch you! <br><br>On the way back we stop at St' Georges bay for a 30 minute swim stop where you can enjoy the breath taking view and the crystal clear waters!

This city is huge, the biggest walled city in Europe. We walked around this city many times, not just in the tourist area but also in the residential area and we got lost several times because of its size. It was good to see different parts of the city that many people don't bother to look around. You can find old ruins as you walk around the narrow alleys and streets as well as a few shops, restaurants and hotels that are off the beaten track. In the tourist part of the city is a main square with loads of shops and stalls selling just about anything and everything. Most of the designer clothes are fake and don't pay the asking price, haggle the price down for some great bargains. There are plenty of restaurants touting for your custom, so be prepared to be pestered as you walk past. The food and drink prices are good value though, so it's worth sitting at a table and watching the world go by whilst enjoying an ice cold beer. A word of caution though make sure you order a pint not a large beer or you get a 1 or 2 litre glass boot of beer at silly prices. It's worth going as there is so much to see and enjoy and because it's so big a few visits will be needed.

Took the local bus for €4 each to the city. Beautiful harbour area and opportunities for boat trips. The old medieval city inside the walls is great to visit. Lots of tourist shops, restaurants and bars. We took the tourist ditto train tour which we found very good and informative. Excellent value at €7 each.
