Nisyros Guide

Located in the Dodecanese group of islands in the Aegean Sea, the island of Nisyros lies between the neighbouring islands of Kos and Tilos. The island's coast has a few sandy beaches, which are generally located in the north east part of the island, but generally the Nisyros coastline is characterised by rocky or pebbled beaches. The island's volcano is active but luckily for tourists it is not erupting and Fumaroles can be found at the craters. According to Greek mythology, the island was formed when Poseidon cut off a part of Kos and threw it onto the giant Polybotes to stop him from escaping. Fifth century ancient walls, which were originally part of the acropolis on the island, can be found near Mandraki and the island's ancient name was Porphyris.

From the island's port there are conventional and high speed ferry services that generally depart to the other islands of the Dodecanese. There are also services to the Cycladic islands and also to Crete, but usually via another island.
