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.

I must say it is quite impressive for the number of fumaroles that release sulfuree clouds. The climb is tough in November, due to the slope and the heat. I dare not think what it might be in the summer. You need a hat, good shoes, water and sunscreen in abundance.

In Thirasia a wonderful water for bathing even if there is not a real beach but a few flaps between one restaurant and another.
You can listen Yanni song Santorini Worlds beautiful city Santorini so the surroundings will always be beautiful. Everyone would like to have desire to visit Santorini in his/her life. But around Santorini the places are also unmissable especially the active volcano in the Aegean sea. When you are here then in front of you is splendid view with wind tempers the heat the trip is realy worth.
The scenery is better from the water...stay on boat. Why pay to see a hole and roast your arse off. Everyone is miserable..hot..and near dileria after that hike. Lol...my view was better.
