The small and picturesque isle of Nisyros, inhabited by 1000 people in the south of Kos, offers options for entertainment, good food and relaxation. The monastery of Panagia Spiliani found on an overlook above Mandraki, the capital of the island celebrates on the 9th of August through the 15th when the pinnacle of the festivities is reached. Nisyros became famous due to its volcano, boasting a great crater going by the name Stefanos, monopolizing touristic interest, as one of the few remaining hydrothermal craters of the world. Small boats make their way to Nisyros from the port of Kardamena and Kos. The time spent traveling will not surpass 2 hours in either case, with the main port of the island being the one furthest away. The visitor may return to Kos on the same day or spend the night in one of the hotels or studios of the isle.
