“Nice swimming”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Our sailing boat excursion took us to the hot spring. After you jumped out of the boat, you can swim to the little bay. You can feel the water changed temperature. And as the mud get shallower, you can apply it to your body.. or your face as you wish. It was fun and a nice experience for us!

“Don't stay on the boat, jump in!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

This was one of the highlights of a fantastic trip to Santorini. I visited as part of a boat tour and was delighted to discover that you had to jump of the boat to swim out to the warmer mud. A quick swim later I was covered in orange muck, but days later my skin still feels fantastic. I could have stayed for hours!
Tip: don't wear your best white swimming costume

“Warm, smelly and rusty”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

On our day long boat trip we stopped at the hot springs and were able to swim inshore to their source.
We were warned that the rusty mud would stain clothing if you got it on them.
We were not warned that it would make your fingernails 'rusty' for several days afterwards.
Nor that it was bad egg smelly!!
Some fun though.

“The hot springs are a must”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

If you come here during yout boat tour, don't forget to go for a swim in the hot springs. The water is cold at first, but it gets warmer and warmer, and it's quite hot at the end of he bay. Had a great time there, pieces of orange mud swim by you. Such fun :)

“Waste of time”
Reviewed 19 January 2013

Come on, these are not hot springs but a little warmer water than on any beach around Santorini. Plus very crowded. Not worth it.
