Greece Travel Guide – what to expect in the small islands

Yasou! – Lets start off with that because that’s how they say ‘hello’ in Greek!

I am back from my Greece travels & missing it already. I had such an amazing time spending 2 weeks in Greece. The islands are such a beautiful and thriving place filled with friendly people, who are just as excited as you to be there.

My first few days there we stayed in a town called Archangelos, which is on one of the smaller Greek Islands closer towards Turkey. The town is a small & humble suburb of Greece with an absolutely beautiful beach surrounding! The weather is around 80 degrees each day (during July/August).

Some of the sites we visited that were within driving distance from Archangelos:

  • San Paul Bay Lindo
  • Lindos Akropolis
  • Anthony Quinn’s Bay
  • Valley of the Butterflies

We then took a short detour on our way to Symi and spent one night in Rhodes! A medieval City with so much history between every corridor. This town was absolutely breathtaking! I’m such a sucker for history and this place was filled with it.

During the day, everyone is out by the docks where the city is surrounded by the Mediterranean sea. By night, the city is lit with vendors, restaurants, & a shows.The entire town by evening is vibrating with so much energy!

For legal purposes thats a glass of iced tea loll.

Also, a heads up, the city is filled with stray cats! They’re super friendly and playful but just a caution to anyone with an allergy.

The next morning, we headed out to the docks to arrive at our final destination, Symi! The city of Symi is a small oceanfront town that is adorned with pastel-colored buildings, yachts surrounded the docks, & delightfully kind people! The view is straight out of a movie.

We got an Airbnb just 3 blocks into town & close to just about everything walking distance. The whole town is just one big aesthetic background that belongs on Pinterest. We rented a Vespa that helped us get around to the various beaches that were on the other side of the island.

The food is so damn delicious, I for sure walked away with 10 extra pounds. There was an ice cream vendor down the block from our Airbnb that we pigged out at coming back from the beach each time. His ice cream was homemade, made with goat milk, & was insanely delicious!

The food on this island is one word: mouth watering. The goat milk ice cream was so addicting. We had it once a day, everyday we were there!

Some beautiful sites we visited that I would suggest going to are:

  • Agia Marina Beach
  • Panormitis Church
  • Pantelist Restaurant
  • Nanoy Beach

If Greece is on your list, I highly suggest stopping by Symi & Rhodes & spending a few days in these beautiful Greek Islands! Enjoy the guide & safe travels!
