Uncrowded beaches

This is always a pleasant time of the year on Symi. Neither too hot nor too cold, the breeze a cooling hand upon the forehead rather than a blast of hot air. The children, bright eyed and eager, are back in school and there is a sudden dearth of 18-22 year olds as the students have all returned to campuses further afield. This year’s new intake of contract teachers has arrived and is settling in. (See out and about)

September is the month when many of the island’s regular visitors come. The ones who are not tied to school holidays and can take advantage of uncrowded beaches and more comfortable temperatures. It is also a good time for people with young children below school age as the sea is warm but there is less danger of sunburn and heat stroke.

We have just been informed by ANES that the Aegli hydrofoil is back in commission but we do advise travellers to check again close to travelling time as we have not been told exactly when she will be resuming her schedule. Just to keep us all on our toes the Symi came in direct to Yialos this morning at 11.00 instead of via Panormitis.

Have a good weekend.

About this Blog

I sailed into Panormitis Bay, Symi, by chance one windy July day in 1993 and have been here ever since. The locals tell me that this is one of the miracles of St Michael of Panormitis. A BA graduate with majors in English, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation, the idea of living in what is to all intents and purposes an archaeological site appeals to me. Not as small as Kastellorizo, not as touristy as Rhodes, Symi is just the right size. I live on a small holding which my husband and I have reclaimed from a ruin of over-grazing and neglect and turned into a small oasis over the course of the past 22 years. I also work part-time for Symi Visitor Accommodation, helping independent travellers discover and enjoy Symi's simple pleasures for themselves.
