Nea Kameni - Review

Nea Kameni is one of the two Volcanic Islands of Santorini. Being the larger one it is also the one that is closer to Santorini Islands. It is quite easy to find a ferry or boat to reach this island through the western side of the island.

Nea Kameni, Santorini Reviews

  • If you really like to walk on an active volcano then Néa Kaméni is a must do thing in Santorini. Here you can actually feel the warm ground just by digging a little bit and smokes coming from some of the sites. The walking path is easy but slippery, can be tricky for people with mobility difficulties, no shops on this island, a bottle of water will help in summer. In April 2018, the tickets were 20€ for a guided tour including the hot spring from Santorini old port. A fee of 2.5€/person is to be paid in cash upon arrival. You can buy the tickets on any shop selling it on the island and sometimes hotel receptions have them too. The view of main island from Néa Kaméni is wonderful.

  • Came here with a cruise ship (30-euro a ticket 09:30-18:00) and had 2 hours to kill on the volcano. Highly recommend it for hiking enthusiasts. Have good footwear with you, it is doable also with flip flops as you wore these. The ship was pretty loaded, around 100 people.

  • Must walk up the 🌋 to experience the hot ground volcano feel.. 😊

  • it has hilling properties due to the sulfur from the out don't swim with bathing suits of light colors,they will become can fo snorkelling and see the volcanic formations on the ground
