You will stay at the volcanic island for 1.5hr and in the end you will embark again to our boat for our destination the island of Palea Kameni where the famous hot springs are located on the west side. This a place really popular for its thermal waters. We will stop there for 30min at a distance of 30 meters from the shallow waters of Agios Nicholaos’ beach.
