Nimborio

This quiet village was once the ancient capital of the island, where King Nereus (as mentioned in The Odyssey) lived. Also, the first port on the island and an important trading center. Today, it is a tiny but very picturesque village with a few houses built by the sea. Nimborio is the second natural port of the island after Gialos, and in its natural deep bay you can often see dolphins. To reach the village, you can walk over from Symi, but you can also catch taxi-boats. The walk takes about 50 minutes and is really worth it. You will enjoy wonderful views, but it is a bit uphill at times. Nimborio has a lovely and family friendly beach with sun beds and a family run tavern with great Greek food. The beach is great for swimming and snorkeling or just for relaxing and sunbathing. Nimborio is one of those places you fall in love with the breathtaking scenery at first sight. It is still a developing resort, so it does not attract many people. If you want a picturesque little place to spend the day and swim, this is a very pleasant and quaint little  corner.
