It's worth the trip and the hike to the top. Many people will say its just a bunch of volcanic rocks but what do you expect - it is what it is.

Okay lets start from this, you have to visit it. It's basically an island created by several eruptions of the volcano which is always active but sleepy now and there's nothing but rocks on there. Seems like Mars to me.

Visiting Nea Kameni is of course a very touristy thing to do, but even so it's definitely worth doing. It's not often you get the chance to walk along the crater of an active volcano … and you can clearly see and smell the sulphuric fumes from several natural vents. The biggest disadvantage is that you have to visit the... More

Even that low down the views of Fira, and the Old Port are breathtaking. A few made it to the top but we retreated... More

Our group of 28 people toured this national geologic park in June of 2015. We took a boat to the island and our guide led us around this volcano which is still an active volcano. It is interesting to see all the different rock formations. A tour of this volcanic area takes about one hour.

Although the geology behind the volcanic island is fascinating, it is definitely not even remotely worth the visit. Overrun with tourists, it is literally a mound of black volcanic rock with not an ounce of shelter and there are a few average craters as the only sights to see.

we visit this island as part of the caldera's boat sunset tour. the visit is very good in learning the history if santorini, and seeing the active crater which in closer look is still produces smoke and to reach the highest point- the view is just amazing 360 degree. you must take a panoramic view of it. there is an...

The boat trip here is a great day out and you have to pay 2 euros to land. Your guide has a great knowledge of the volcano and it's a nice history lesson as well as a beautiful stroll. You can see the sulphur seeping through the cracks in the rock surface and there are some great photo opportunities here.... More

One does not simply walk around Nea Kameni without a good pair of walking shoes, especially when you joined a sailing tour and only had 2 hours to take photos of the unique landscape of the crater.

I booked a day tour which included the volcano hiking, swimming in the hot spring, lunch at Thirasia and ending with sunset at Oia for 38 euros. A boat took us from the port to the island of Nea Kameni. Thereafter we had to pay 2 euros to enter the place and hike up the volcano. After ten minutes I... More
