The climate of Symi (Greece)
Symi or Simi is a small island off the Turkish coast but is part of Greece. Symi is part of the Dodekanesos islands and is situated in the Aegean Sea. Gialos is the capital, but is often referred to as Chora, which means capital. This used to be one of the most important sites for finding natural sponges. Ever since these sponges disappeared the number of inhabitants decreased. Nowadays only a few thousand people live on the island. The beautiful Panormitis monastery can be found on this island. Symi has a warm Mediterranean climate with warm and dry summers and wet and cold winters. During the summer temperatures are around 30 degrees Celsius on average. However, it may get a little hotter during the warmest part of the day; the best you can do is find a place in the shade near the sea then. Winters are too cold to make Symi suitable as a winter sun destination.
