Symi is part of the Dodecanese islands with a majority of the land covered in rocks. Symi is reputed to be the birthplace of the Charites and to take its name from the nymph Syme (in antiquity the island was known as Aigli and Metaponti).
Tourism in Symi is dependent on daily visitors who come from Rhodes and visitors who stay in Symi for a couple of days. Symiots who live abroad visit Symi for their vacations during the summer months as well. The duration of the touristic season lasts 7 months (April - October). High season lasts three months July - September. A few number of people are engaged in agriculture, farming and fishery. Boat building and wood carving (furniture, decorative motives in interior architecture) flourished in the past. Nowadays two small boat - yards are operating mainly for the construction and repair of the fishing boats. There are a number of islets around Symi, such as Nimos, which is the largest one, as well as Sesklia, Artikonisi, Koulountro, Troubeto, Chondros, Plati, Oxia, Diabates, Marmaras. All these small islands can be visited with caiques, or small boats.
