    Hot springs??????
    It is only a deserded beach and nothing more. There was no hot water or bassin to lay in. Very disappointing.

    Perfect day out
    A highlight. We caught a number 1 bus to agios fokas and walked the 25 minutes to the spring. The walk was beautiful. It’s April so perfect weather. The couple hours we spent in the spring was heaven on earth. We met really lovely people and no one wanted to get out. It was a day I won’t forget. A natural, wonderful, magical place.

    The trek down the grey volcanic hillside finishes at a natural rockpool that has very hot thermal water that escapes to the cold azure sea so that the water is not stagnant. I loved sitting in it with other tourists and watching the bubbles trickle up to the surface with steam floating. You quickly dip into the cold sea and feel energized. It's so unspoilt and natural.
    Even 2 goats came up to us on the beach for a feed of my banana. I'll always go there to renew myself. Very unique experience.

    What a lot of these comments do not understand is that this is not some big tourist attraction, it's just a body of water, and Greece isn't just a playground for tourists to have fun, it's our country and it can exist without commercializing everything about it.

    Just a great spot and completely natural. The earlier reviewers are barking up the wrong tree. The old spa house had long stopped working. A must to visit on Kos island

    Loved the unspoilt natural springs
    I thought these were great, not commercialised and a wonderful experience. Not everything has to be part of a theme park or over-engineered.
    The effort to get there was well worth it and something I would repeat,
    Who cannot feel the wonder of sitting in the sea with the water temperature of a nice warm (hot) bath.

    The hot springs got rid of a cyst
    The hot springs got rid of a cyst on my upper back… a complete surprise to me. The cyst grew back 3 years later so I should have repeated the visit to the thermal springs more often.
    I agree the beach itself is not a good choice for pure sunbathing. The hike down and up from the main road is tough in the heat with 1 or 2 Cantina stops for drinks.
    Yes the Greek authorities could really make the experience more attractive by developing it.
    However, the healing properties of the springs for me, far outweigh the undeveloped rugged area…. and to me that was the natural beauty of it.

    I’m not sure why the other reviewers are so negative. It’s not a 5* attraction and it’s a fair walk down and back up again but well worth the experience. Sitting in a seawater pool that’s heated by thermal springs is a great experience.
    With respect to the other reviews, stagnant? Not at all, you can smell the sulphur which proves it’s a thermal spring not a tank on the hill (what a ridiculous statement)
    3 stars because it’s not very comfortable but otherwise worth a visit

    No reason to go there

    Bad place..... No reason to go there.... That's all....

    It was fake
    The hot spring is actually man made and has stag dent waters running into the pool confirmed by a few locals lol lol enjoy the dirty stagdent water people from the moment I stepped foot onto the beach I knew it was fake and man made with pipes running from a water tank up top so glad I chose to not get in the water

    Disappointed with this tourist attraction
    So disappointed with this tourist attraction. I thought this would be like an attraction I could stay at all day. Unkempt area. Maybe the Greek tourist board could take it under there guidance , this could be a goldmine. The thermal bath itself was very warm, but once I'd experienced this I did not want to stay on the beach ????

    The Thermes were great BUT
    ...the beach area in and around the Thermes was dirty and littered with cigarette butts and the "restaurant" beside the Thermes was unpleasant to say the least. The natural phenomenon is a great asset to the Island, but it is let down by poor management. If the restaurant can't get their act together and take some responsibility for taking care of the attraction, the local tourist board need to act to get the people out. The local tourist board could (perhaps with grant funding) sensitively develop the site retaining a very natural feel, but also making the most of the feature ensuring an enjoyable experience for all.
