Nea Kameni is one of the volcanic islands situated in the Santorini caldera. It’s almost two millennia old and around the caldera, there are many volcanic islands present – active volcanic islands, mind you.
If you’re holidaying in Santorini, you must go for a day trip to the surrounding islands. Find a tour agency that brings you not just to one island, but two or more. This is what we did – and Nea Kameni was our first stop of the island hopping day tour.
Here are some interesting facts about the island.
An Island Made of Lava
The island and its neighboring Palea Kameni are a result of a repeated dacite lava eruptions and ash. While strolling on the island, you’ll be able to see not just one, but a few deep craters. It’s surreal.
