Welcome to the beautiful island of Symi, Greece, in the middle of the Aegean Sea. Symi is part of the Dodecanese island chain, located about forty-one kilometres northwest of Rhodes, featuring fifty-eight-point one square kilometres of mountainous terrain.
In this series we will discover the beauty of Symi’s capital, Gialos, and its neighbouring district of Chorio as we learn more about the hospitable harbour of the island, a popular resting place for sailors to park up and explore.
Symi is home to a long tradition of shipbuilding, handmade boats with real charm. Get to know first-hand this handiwork before visiting the historic castle and taking a ride on a traditional Grecian boat. You will see this apparently small island is filled with a vast variety of things to do, see and eat.
Join us on Nautical Channel on our journey to the Aegean Sea to discover the secrets of Symi.
