It covers an area of 90 km2 and is actually an archipelago of islands created by several volcanic eruptions. The islands of that small archipelago are Thirasia, Aspronisi, and the volcanic islands of Palea Kameni and Nea Kameni. Before being separated from each other, those islands formed a single island, which was called Strongili.
