Nea Kameni

The volcano of Santorini, an island that sprung from the sea after a volcanic eruption in 1570 AD. A hike to its crater with steam rising from the surface is a unique experience.

The island of Nea Kameni, also known as the Santorini volcano, is a volcanic island at the centre of the impressive Santorini caldera. Nea Kameni was formed around 1570 after a series of volcanic eruptions. Its highest point is 127 m above the sea level and it has two ports east (cove of Taxiarchis) and north of the island (cove of Erinia). Nea Kameni is surrounded by warm dark waters which are known for their therapeutic benefits. Visitors can reach the islet with the traditional caiques that deoart from the old port of Fira and enjoy a bath in the hot springs. The healing waters of Nea Kameni consist of iron and manganese which act against many diseases that older people usually suffer from. Nea Kameni also hosts the famous volcano that visitors can walk up to. However, careful walking is required on the volcano as it is still active. The last eruptions happened as early as 1953.
