Santorini is gifted with a unique natural beauty and a wild scenery created by the volcanic eruptions. As it is extremely famous for the beautiful caldera, the island is also known for the two small islands of black lava positioned at the center of the basin of Santorini which is, geographically, the youngest islets in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Nea Kameni especially is a pole of attraction for tourists for its healing hot springs. The yellow waters there contain a large amount of sulfur and are characterized for their therapeutic purposes. Today, Agios Nikolaos, which is the small cove in Nea Kameni islet, is a true health source.
Santorini villages are perched on high cliffs and offer breathtaking views to the caldera and the young volcanic islets, especially during the amazingly colored sunset. Tourists can visit the volcano by taking one of the daily cruises. One can walk upon the solid black lava sides of the steaming volcano and explore the whole area which is quite impressive. Nea Kameni is the central one, and once on its shore, after a walk of 20 minutes in the lunar scenery, visitors will discover the volcano’s crater and other openings bursting with sulfur steam.
The area also offers an incredible view of the beautiful villages of Fira and Oia hanging on the cliffs.
The oldest volcano, Palea Kameni, also has hot springs.
