Description: Nisyros is located in the middle of the Dodecanese islands. It is essentially a volcanic cone inside is one of the oldest and largest volcanic craters in the Mediterranean. According to legend, Nisyros was created when god Poseidon cut with his trident a piece of the island of Kos at the pursuing of giant Polyvotis during the Clash of the Titans. The giant was buried under the island and hence believed that the periodic vibrations of the island is none other than the ongoing chest of the titan while he groans buried beneath the earth. This explains the fact that Neptune was the protector of the island in antiquity, but also the close relationship between Nisyros and Kos that holds till today. The history of Nisyros is consistent with that of islands in the southeastern Aegean and united with Greece after the Second World War. Nisyros today is a very special destination, thanks to an active volcano and the unique geomorphological characteristics. Holidays calm and relaxing dips in particular beaches and fresh fish tavernas available, is what he has to offer Nisyros visitors who find their paradise here, away from the hustle of the tourist islands. Is connected with the port of Piraeus (the trip lasts 14 hours) and there is access from the nearby islands (Kos, Kalymnos and Rhodes). Port and capital of the island is Mandraki.
