Palea Kameni is an uninhabited island located in the Aegean Sea, part of the Santorini archipelago.
The island was formed in connection with an underwater volcanic eruption that occurred around 46- 47 A.D. Volcanic activity continued in the future, due to which the shape and size of the island changed several times.
Today the island is home to the Church of St. Nicholas and natural hot springs, to which boat trips are organized from the island of Tira.
Nea Kameni is an uninhabited island located in the Aegean Sea, part of the Santorini archipelago.
The island was formed due to an underwater volcanic eruption in 1570. Initially, the island was quite small, which is why it was named Mikri Kameni. Due to the prolonged volcanic activity, the island gradually grew, due to which it received its current name.
There are no sources of fresh water on the island, and the vegetation is very scarce, but tourists are still attracted here by the unusual volcanic landscape. Boat trips to the island are organized from Tire.
