Boat Tour to the Volcanic Island of Nisyros
TUI collection

Boat Tour to the Volcanic Island of Nisyros

If there's one must-visit while you're in Kos, it's the volcanic island of Nisyros. Once you've docked in the harbour of Mandraki, the island's capital, you'll head to Nikia on the edge of the Stefanos crater. Lose yourself in the labyrinth of cobbled stoned lanes or find a spot near the crater's edge, where you can feel the heat. Afterwards, head back to Mandraki. Sugar-cubed houses stretch across this amphitheatre-shaped town, which is in the shadow of a medieval castle and the cliff-side monastery of Panagia Spiliani. There'll also be time to admire the town's balconied houses or have dinner in a taverna.
