Hike to the top takes about 40mins and the view up there of the different islands is fantastic. You can also see the warm volcanic sulphur at the top.

The best way to get to the heart of the volcano is by boat, I would recommend a private boat (otherwise to crowded to enjoy) trip from ‘Bligada’ port, bud of course depends on your budget!

The volcano consists from two islands. “New kameni” and “old kameni”. The interesting thing about the trip in the volcano is that in the first glance there aren’t much things to see. But there is a great opportunity to think all the history, the violent...More

If you have a few hours to spend it's worth a look but it's made out to be more than it is. The boats more about 50/100m from the volcanic spas so you have to swim and then have about 15 minutes there to bathe...More

This volcano does not look like what I thought a volcano would look like, and it is not very active, so you should lower your expectations. If you are lucky, you might smell some sulphur. We did also see a 1m x 2m white area...More

It was not as spectacular as I have imagined it to be. Pretty much a lot of black rocks to be honest. But if you grab a stone, under it you could feel the warmth and then realize that you are on an active volcano....More

I agree with kcarters. It's not an easy climb at times and the footing is always unstable, so I'd advise that you leave it for another visit. The view is amazing but not worth the danger for you
