The Therma also known as empros thermens are situated in the southeastern
corner of the island 13 kilometers away from the town.
The scenery is characterized
by a wild beauty of deep gulches, rocks and black pebbles, the result of
tectonic discord, and volcanic eruptions millions of years ago.
The area was christened after
the hot springs that have been present there for centuries. The waters
reputably bear healing properties as they are rich in potassium, calcium, magnesium,
sulfur and sodium, elements considered instrumental in cures for skin arthritic
or rheumatic diseases. The temperature of the waters hovers between 30-50
The experience of bathing in
this natural Spa is invaluable. In the forefront of the beach a pod has been made,
surrounded by rocks, allowing the seawater in, cooling the hot waters.
The Therma can be visited by bus
or by any private means of transportation.
