“Small wild thermal bath in the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

This is a small thermal bath not far from Kos, easily accessible by bike or baggi. When arriving during low season, don't listen to a lady from the bar on the top of the hill. You can easily ride down by baggi or car and park on a small parking down-below.

The thermal bath itself is a small area in the sea separated by stones. So you can relax in hot thermal water and then swim in the sea.

I guess there are crowds in summer but in October it's quite.

“A different experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We visited here after reading other reviews. It was a short drive from Kos Town, with some amazing views on the way. We parked at the top by the little cafe (could have parked down the hill but we didn't think our little car would make it back up!). It's quite a steep walk down the hill to the beach. The beach itself is just pebbles and rocks, and only quite small. We got there early (about 9-9:30am) so we were close to the hot pool. Recommended the earlier the better as just after we got out, about 4 bus-loads of people turned up!! The pool is amazing, really hot! Our son wouldn't go in because he said it was too hot! It took me a while to get in too but one I was in the middle and sitting down it was really nice and relaxing with the heat and the bubbles. We also took a dip in the sea on the other side of the hot pool, and while swimming you can feel little pockets of warmth in the water. It is very rocky though! But I'd definitely go back, just really early in the morning before all the crowds turn up.

“Not a spa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

This is not for people who are expecting a spa but it is still a great natural experience. In November, when we visited, the sea had destroyed the pool excavated each summer by the city authorities, so the area where the springs run into the sea was small and shallow. The beach was also dirty and full of rubbish washed up by rough seas. Nevertheless, on a glorious, sunny day, we were the only people there and spent 45 minutes enjoying the very hot mineral water on our backs. However, there were no signs at all and no indication where the springs were. After searching the beach for about 20 minutes, I noticed the pool where all the stones were orange. This is where the springs emerge, but not easy to find. We felt invigorated for the whole day, so yes, worth the visit.

“Weird”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

It's weird sitting in water so hot - and we're talking bath temperature - whilst on a beach. Hot water on one side of a wall and normal cool sea temps on the other side of the wall.
