My absolute favorite thing about our trip to Santorini! We rented an ATV (since we didn't have a scooter license) and drove up and down the entire island. We were staying in Firostefani and rented from a place in Fira, but you can find rental places all over the island! From Fira we drove down to the tip of the island where there was a light house. Some seriously amazing views there and along the way! From the lighthouse we drove down to a black sand beach and checked it out before heading up the island in the other direction towards Oia. We drove through Oia to get to Ammoudi Bay, swam in the bay and then back to Oia to stop in and walk around a bit. Some seriously breathtaking views the entire way. Definitely rent one to explore and check out the island!
It cost us 40 euros for 24 hours for the ATV.

You will probably visit this place while on a boat cruise. It is interesting place proving the volcanic activity, but swimming here with many other people from the boats coming here is not my cup of tea and the springs are not very hot. Just warm. You will have to look for some spot and check the bubbles. You end up with yellow colored swimsuits. It is not that bad, but with the crowds going there, it was not the experience we were looking for.

Hot spring only which isnt too hot... it was part of our tour so it was ok, however i wouldnt specifically pick to go there. Worth the 20 minutes that you are there for a nice swim in the sea.

It is surely the most authentic place on Santorini caldera. We often visit our friend Sostis there...

We reached the place as part of a tour which anchors near it and you have to swim across. We observed the sea with the different color tinges and the surrounding areas from the boat as the sea toward the beach and beach itself was overcrowded and we had a 30 minute halt here.

Tips:
1. You need to dedicate some time to explore the places further up from the beach, 2 hours plus would be a reasonable.
2. If any form of swimming is required to get to the island, better to carry a water proof bag to carry water, valuable and camera to the island.
