A view of Imerovigli from the cable car that takes you from the top of the crater to the harbor.
The happening place in Imerovigli village. Santorni's popularity as a tourist destination esp. for the Americans and Australians has resulted sadly, in the sprouting of several bars, discotheques etc. in the villages.
Mules available to take you back to the top, to the villages. (We were told the journey was very very uncomfortable).
The boarding zone for travels to Nea Kameni (New Burnt). There is a bigger port/harbor further south for larger boats that take you to the other Cycladic islands and Athens.
Boats are lined up next to each other and the passengers have to walk across several gangplanks to reach the pier.
Nea Kameni (New 'Burnt'). The black rock-like soil is actually lava.

The island of Nea Kameni has several craters that still emit gases and have sulfur deposits on the surface.
We arrived at Thirassia for lunch. Thisisland lies to the NW of Nea Kameni and is part of the original crater.
Boat docked at Thirassia pier

In Greece, the water at the end of May is still quite cold - hence the beaches were quite empty save for some hardy German tourists who seemed very comfortable with the near-frigid temperatures.
