My favorite beach in Symi island. You can walk there from Pedi or take a taxi boat from Symi harbour. The beach is very quiet and the color of water is a combination of blue, green and turquoise. The beach is popular for families, couples,...More

Symi in October, we visited St. Nicholas beach twice. On approach, on the water taxi, it did look a bit barren, but it was perfect for soaking up the sun, cooling off in the sea and enjoying good simple Greek food in the taverna. The...More

It a good approx 20mins walk to beach. It's nice location. I would recommend the visit. Water was clear blue. There is sunbeds to hire, we paid €7.00 for 2. Reasonable priced.

Beautiful beach, a few people but very accessible. A boat taxi will take you there or a scooter to Pedi and a hike.

Spent 10 days on Symi and this was our favorite beach. You can walk from Pedi or take a taxi boat from the harbour. Choice of full taverna or small bar serving drinks and snacks. Great chill out beach and good swimming or snorkelling.
