Palea Kameni is the smaller one of the two beautiful volcanic islands that is a part of the Santorini. A small ferry ride will take you in and around these lovely dormant volcanoes that are a real sight to see. The Palea Kameni is one of the most popular sights in the region due to this volcanic nature.
The last eruption of the mountain was perhaps in the Minoan era. The island is also home to a few famous hot springs that spout warm water. One can stop on the boat ride to take a swim in the lovely hot springs. The water is green but do be aware that it can stain your clothes. Towards the afternoon the water in the hot springs gets pretty hot so it is better to visit in the morning.
All in all, a visit to the Palea Kameni is a unique experience full of surprises. The thrill of seeing a volcano aside, it is a great place to travel to from the main island to spend the day.
