"Shape of the island." Nea Kameni - The Volcano Tip by Helga67
Nea Kameni - The Volcano, Santorini Island: 10 reviews and 16 photos
Favorite thing: Santorini used to be a round island, but during an earthquake and volcano-outbreak in the 15th century BC the middle of the island sunk and gave it the shape it has today.
The volcano that you can see opposite Fira is still active. The last eruption was in 1956, causing an earthquake that destroyed many villages on the island.
Today you can make a boat excursion to the volcano: walking on the lava and swimming in the hot springs.
