“BRING A SECOND BATHING SUIT”
Reviewed July 12, 2010

See it if you have lots of time on your hands. If you swimm in the hot springs, bring a second bathing suit, because it will stain. Again, Nissiros Volcano is far better.

“Great Hot Springs of the Volcano!”
Reviewed March 16, 2008

Palea Kameni is actually one of the 2 volcanoes of Santorini and is located right at the middle of the caldera! It's older than Nea Kameni and there you can find the famous Hot Springs! I visited Santorini in summer 2007 and joined the trip "Caldera round trip".
The little wooden boat stopped just outside the springs and we swam to the Springs; it was lovely, very warm waters and we heard that it remains that warm all year round! Just in the middle of the bay of the Hot Springs, there is a little church, dedicated to Saint Nikolaos, who is the patron saint of sailors in Greece.
Definetely recommended as one must-to-have experience in Santorini...

I've recently found more info at www.mysantorini.com . There you can book online some of the classic trips to Palea Kameni and the volcanoes of Santorini.
