Nissiros (or Nissyros) is a small volcanic island, a mere 41 square kilometers in area, situated between Kos and Tilos. In antiquity it was known as Porphyris. Mythology holds that once it was united with Kos and that when Poseidon was chasing the giant Polyvotis, he split the two islands asunder.
Approaching Nissiros you are impressed by perfectly white houses, dense greenery, and the colors of the dark volcanic soil.

Many have found their paradise on this small island since it is very beautiful, has a laidback atmosphere and is not commercialized, since it has few visitors and the people does not depend on tourism.
People here live off fishing and farming, since the volcanic soil is fertile. Fruit, olives and nuts are grown, and there is a special flora and fauna. There are many things to see on the island and lovely beaches.

Nissiros Today

The capital and port of Nissiros is Mandraki, set in the northwest at the foot of a steep hill. The whiteness of its houses forms a striking contrast to the dark, volcanic earth. Yet another castle erected by the Knights of St. John looms above the small town, while a chapel nearby dedicated to the Panayia tis Spilianis (Our Lady of the Cave), the patroness of the island, clings to the tip of the rock. Built in 1600, it is linked with many traditions and has a lovely 18th century iconostasis.

The island’s hot springs, fabled since antiquity and still in use today, are to be found at Loutra just 1.5 kilometres from Mandraki. East of Loutra is the picturesque fishing village of Pali.

Another village, Emborios, lies to the southeast of Mandraki, in the interior of the island, in a lush area with mineral springs and planted with olive trees, fruit trees, fig trees and grapevines.

You have to go almost to the middle of Nissiros to the Lakki plateau, to see the crater of the extinct volcano, Polybates. It is 260 meters in diameter and 30 m deep with steps leading down to its Center. The reek of sulphur fills the surrounding air, while the scenery could belong to the moon.
In the south of the island, the charming village of Nikia perches on the crest of a hill 400m
above sea level. Its white houses with their brightly colored doors and windows and tile roofs are an attractive complement to the greenery that abounds in the district.

Nissiros is blessed with many lovely beaches: at Mandraki, Hochlaki, Aghia lrini, Avlaki and
on Giali, the islet directly opposite.
