This is an unusual attraction which we visited one afternoon. There is a car park at the top on the road with a small cafe but if you are really brave, you could drive your hire jeep down the steep slope to the beach area. Walking, it takes about 10 minutes. Alternatively, you could ride on one of the donkeys.... More

We went there on our first day in KOs and we were expecting more from hat place.. first of all, the sea was rather cold in may, so the thermal water seemed very hot. There was too crowded for 5 square meters pool, it is a little bit dirty around and doesn't look very hygienic, so I risked only to... More

It is a bit of a steep walk down the hill but nowhere near as bad as people have been making out - we managed perfectly well in flip flops and on the way back up it was maybe a 10 minute walk at the most! One thing to note is that there isn't anything else there - just a... More

You should try it! Hot thermal water really refreshes and cures. My slightly scorched shoulders ceased to pinch after the third entrance into the water though it's very salty. As a whole feelings are remarkable! It is better to visit in the morning when there is less people.

Weirdly this spot has not been over commercialised which I believe is part of its charm. We walked here by the coast and climbed up the last remaining rocks by the sea up through the goats and back to the road from our hotel Michaelangelo. This is not for the faint hearted or unprepared for steep climbs but was good... More

We hired a car and travelled here. It was worth the visit! Dont be fooled by the cooler water round the sides of this area once you get in the hot springs bubble away benefit you giving you shots of hot water. Its such a great experience. Theres quite a steep slope down and up to the springs but if... More

Dont expect any service here - just nature at its best. The hot sprind is directly pouring into the seaand bubbling up from the seabed. Its really hot and well smelly - still wonderful experience. As always best to avoid the crowd. Go ther when most are running around the buffet table in the morning or at night. Free entry... More

I have been to Kos several times over the last 15 years and have been here many times, this year I went as I haven't been for 3 years and was shocked to find "donkeys" in the heat to give people a lift up and down the hill which is about a 10 minute walk!!!!!!!! The place is now ruined,it... More

A bit dirty, crowded and not as amazing looking as we thought. The hot spring itself was indeed hot and fascinating - the rest clearly below expectation. Wear good shoes for walking the 500meters down, and preferably bathing shoes (very stony beach). We went by bike from Psalidi, i nice 8km ride each way, recomended!

Great experience but it was rather packed when we went during the day. Still had fun sitting in the therma spring then in the sea to cool down. Things we wished we knew : - It is a steep walk down the mountain side, we were dropped off by coach at the top. Takes about 5 minutes but was harder... More
