A narrow strip of land connects the islet of Agios Aimilianos with the mainland of Symi. It does not have sandy beaches, but its waters are green and clear. Sailing to Agios Aimilianos you will see the pebbled beach Maroni (northwest of Gialos) with the pinewood reaching the coast. Right after Maroni, there is another isolated beach, which is Gaidouromantra. Info You can go to the beaches by sea taxis which depart from the port of Symi in the morning (usually at 10 o’ clock) and return in the afternoon at 4 o’ clock.
