Accessible only by ferry from Rodos, the village of Symi is a quaint and hidden treat.

But it takes more than a simple ferry ride to reach Symi Harbor. After that, visitors must commonly take a several-hour trip along the mountainous Turkish coast, and then travel around the sparse, dry, uninhabited coast of the island before now-weary travelers suddenly stumble upon a small, hill-lined inlet lined with pastel-colored neoclassical homes.
