Palia Kameni

romvos-center-2

Palia Kameni is a very small beach in the northeast side of Palia Kamenis’ island. You can access it only by boat from ‘Athinio’ or ‘Fira’ (it is worth the effort). The whole island is the result of a volcanic eruption, captivating and wild with its black rocks. The water is very peculiar, it is quite warm and has a yellow-green colour due to the brimstone and the hot springs of the area.
