The Hot Springs of Santorini: 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 tour boats that depart from the old port of Fira or Athinios Port and they can 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.
