Inclement weather brings many day-trippers from Rhodes. Visitors staying on the island also take a break from the beach to browse around the shops and boutiques in Yialos and have lunch in the harbour. Summer-time shopping on Symi has improved considerably over the years and we now have an excellent range of clothing boutiques to suit all figures, tastes and budgets. As shops stay open until quite late in the evenings you can combine dining out with some memorable retail therapy.
Have a good weekend.
