Volcano: Kos - Yali - Nisyros volcanic field (see Kos - Yali - Nisyros volcanic field at the Smithsonian Institution website in a new tab)
Type: Bubbling Water
Description: Thermal spring along the southern coast of the island approximately halfway between Kardamena and Agios Fokas. The spring issues between the boulders on the shore close to a small church dedicated to Saint Irene. The water flux is low and some gas is bubbling in it. In the sea two important gas bubbling areas are present. One close to the shore and one further away at about 10 m depth.
