Don´t expect anything like the Blue lagoon. The "Hot springs" are located in a tiny bay easily distinguished by yellowish water which can only be reached swimming from the ship - non-swimmers, be warned. There is a sensible difference of water temperature in the bay...More

Come on, these are not hot springs but a little warmer water than on any beach around Santorini. Plus very crowded. Not worth it.
