Agia Nicholas beach Symi

The next beach we visited was Agia Nicholas beach or St Nicks as it is sometimes called.

As we were staying in Horio we took a leisurely stroll down to Pedi to get the boat round to Agia Nicholas beach. We were the first customers for the boat and were told to jump in and off we went. the beach was deserted and we had the choice of all the sun loungers

Did not note what the boat cost was but it was not great. The beach is full of trees and has lots of shade.

We sat at the east side away from where the boats come in on the west.

There is a taverna at the west end near to the jetty. which serves a good lunch and at  similar price to the rest of the island.

There is a path round from Pedi which is about a half hour walk, its over very sharp rocks so best for good shoes. No road access so it's either walk or boat.

The beach is a mix of sand and pebbles with some rocky bits in the middle. There is also a small church at the east side near where we were sitting

The civic centre is 60/70s brutalist. Took a quick walk around the building while on Tuesday night beer run.
