Nea Kameni, Santorini

4.3
#4 of 8 in Nature in Santorini
Travel to the small volcanic island of Nea Kameni and climb to the top of the crater. Once at the peak, hike completely around the rim and enjoy stunning ocean views. Don't be surprised to see smoke still rising from this active volcano, which last erupted in 1950. Remember to wear sun protection, as the landscape is almost completely barren and offers little shade. Also wear comfortable hiking shoes that do well on slippery rock. Plan your Nea Kameni visit and explore what else you can see and do in Santorini using our Santorini day trip planning site .

  • Very beautifull in it's roughness. Amazing views around Santorini islands. The fact that the volcano is active gives the visit a bit more excitement!  more »
  • A nice wooden boat ride to get to this island. And after the pleasure of market on the trails of a volcano (2.50 euros to access). Nice and exotic.

  • Came here on a trip. I loved this place! I've never seen anything like it. The ground is dark and the rocks and sand are blackish. It's very hot though. I got sunburnt quite easily. We hiked up form the pier and travelled to the highest point of the island. A good option for a day cruise outside of Santorini.
  • Came here with a cruise ship (30-euro a ticket 09:30-18:00) and had 2 hours to kill on the volcano. Highly recommend it for hiking enthusiasts. Have good footwear with you, it is doable also with flip flops as you wore these. The ship was pretty loaded, around 100 people.
