Hi all, just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on Symi this year?

Hi Lisa, much as we would love to think we will be there in September, I can't see it happening. Would the good people of Symi actually want us to risk bringing anything to their homes? It's a while off yet and things are moving all the time, but with the rates here, I can't see travel being a priority for some time. :(

That was very much the debate last year, with people saying the island needed the business..?!

Hi all,

If you are well and love Symi go in 2021.

My wife, Inge, and I went there last September and had to wonderful weeks there.
We stayed there without problems apart from cancelled flights from Denmark to Rhodes - we travel independently, but in the end we succeeded.
Noone on Symi complained, but of course they would have loved to have more tourists.

We have booked flights and room on Taxiarchis for this September.

All the best,
Karl-Johan

We too managed to get there last September and had a relatively quiet but till delightful time. And we too have flights for this coming September. Nothing is of course certain - though both of us will have completed vaccination (2 shots) in the next couple of months, which must be a positive - but apart from anything else we all need something to look forward to, travellers and islanders together.

We're in the same boat as you, Jan (and may be quite literally one day!) . . . had 2 idyllic weeks on Symi last September and have booked flights for this coming September. Had our first vaccinations on Monday and should have second dose by end of April. Symi islanders need the income from tourism if their businesses are to survive but we all wish for them to stay safe and healthy too. So much can change in a few months. Let's just keep fingers tightly crossed.

Jan & JuliaB, I feel the same we visited Paxos last year, trying to break the spell of Symi. It didn't work! We too are booked for Sept and are part way through our vaccinations. Heres hoping for the best for all visitors and islanders. :)
