Worth the half day visit for free. Water was lovely and warm. I wouldn't recommend going here if you have very small children, heart/breathing problems or trouble with your mobility, as it's a long steep walk down to the springs and the pool isn't easily accesable.

The only thing lacking here is any facilities, There is... More

The beach was a long way from the bus stop and down a very steep hill with no transport to help the elderly or infirm as the walk back to the top was very hard.

This is a well attended spot but has been left largely unspoilt for all that. Located at the end of a long track that goes nowhere else on the east side of the island it can be a bit of a trek, but if you do not have access to a car, there are regular buses from the main town... More

With everyone mentioning the Therma Pool we had to have a look but to be honest it doesn't really live up to expectations. It can be reached by the No 5 bus which stops at the top of a very long and steep stony path down to the beach. Here there is the smallish pool of warm bubbling water but... More

Visited here on way back from visiting Zia. You can get a number 5 bus from Kos town to Therma if you don't have any transport. Just be warned once there it's a fairly steep long path down to the therma pool. There's only a little cafe at the top so make good use of it (also no toilets anywhere... More

Long walk down a very steep hill to a small pool of heated water. No where to change, so a long walk up the hill in wet cosy.

Nice experience worthy a visit. Try to make it at early morning or night! Might be crowded and the hot pool is rather small and shallow

Takes about 10minutes to walk from the car park down and steep hill to the pool. Not really suitable for buggies or wheelchairs unless they are very rugged. The pool is Lovely and very hot. There is a bit of a funny smell but it wasn't as bad as I feared after reading other people's reviews. Perhaps it was just... More
