- Day 1 -
From Rhodes to Symi
About 24 sea miles
Starting early from Rhodes you can reach Symi’s harbour within 3,5 – 4,5 hours. In the scenic harbour of Symi you will find moorings at the north side. Normally you moor your bow or the stern at the quay. You have to mind not to interfere with the ferries anchorages. Then you have got plenty of time to explore the scenic small town. There are lots of tavernas, electricity, water and other facilities to supply.
Alternatively you can also anchor in Pedi (36° 36,95′ N; 027° 51,70′ E), a deep fjord like bay. It is quieter there, but the moorings at the quay in front of the Pedi Beach Hotel are limited. There are more moorings at a new quay in the north of the bay and a new, small marina with plenty of facilities. You can also anchor in the area of the pier in front of the Pedi Beach Hotel.
In a few minutes time you can reach the capital Symi by bus.
The bay in front of the cloister Panormitis at the south-western side of the island is very pretty and romantic.
