Day 4 Kayaking Tour in Symi

Start the morning on the local ferry to Symi, the most picturesque of the Dodecanese Islands. From your first glimpse of this island to the last you will without a doubt find it hard to get enough of this beautifully unique place. Hit the water in Gyalos, heading towards St George Disalonas Bay, an area only accessible by boat. The magnificent rock face behind the beach is a beautiful sight. Swim in the clear waters and enjoy a BBQ next to the chapel.

Tonight, you will stay in Pedi, a true paradise for those seeking serenity. If you are interested in some evening exploration of Gyalo, Symi’s main town, it’s just a short walk away!

Marvel at the amazing views of the colourful houses of Gyalos and Nimporios before reaching Nimos Island, a stone’s throw away from Symi. Nimos is an uninhabited island and as a result has goats aplenty.

Today you’ll enjoy a leisurely lunch served in the courtyard of Panagia Ipakoi’s small church. In the afternoon, it is sadly time to say goodbye to this little rocky paradise and catch the ferry to Rhodes.

It is up to 50 metres long and 30 metres wide. Through its tiny entrance, you paddle in to find a blue grotto. The light of the sun reflects in the interior of the cave, thereby producing a dazzling azure colour. Sea turtles abound in this area, so be sure to keep an eye out for them.

After your visit, stop for lunch, this time in the quiet village of Kastellorizo overlooking the Turkish coast. After a leisurely lunch you’ll head back to Rhodes.
