Slide into its soothing thermal waters and while away a sun-drenched afternoon at Palea Kameni. A refreshing dip in the center of a soaring caldera is a soul-satisfying opportunity for serene repose amid the hubbub of central Santorini. It's the place to be when you seek relaxation and solitude in the Cyclades.
Palea Kameni is yet another majestic Santorini caldera (alongside the blue-domed churches stippled into its most famous vista). Located on another diminutive isle within Santorini's cluster, it was formed in 1570 after volcanic eruptions devasted the originally much larger island, where tiny shards of isles took their place.
Now, this dramatic, charcoal-tinted caldera cradles a pool of delightfully warm thermal waters that charter guests must visit when visiting Santorini. Containing the healing properties of iron and magnesium, with temperatures reaching a scintillating 30 to 35 degrees, it mixes with the normal sea currents. You can rest assured that a mellow float will leave you feeling fully cleansed all day long.
For the more adventurous souls amongst you, you can also walk up the volcano for vertiginous views of the Cyclades.
Unwinding at Palea Kameni is a wonderful way to weave serene moments of quiet bliss into your yacht charter vacation exploring the natural wonder of the Cyclades island group.
