Surrounded in Greek mythology, Paloi and the island of Nisyros itself are perfect places for ancient history enthusiasts. Paloi was said to be built on the ruins of an ancient city linked to therapeutic Roman baths that were there thousands of years ago. It is also legend that the island was created after Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea, impaled a Titan, Polyvotis, with his trident and, where the force was so strong, apparently split the island of Kos into two; Kos and Nisyros.
The island itself is idyllic, peaceful and very laidback, with superb beaches that are perfect for snorkelling and windsurfing, two very popular sports in the Cycladean region. In the capital, Mandraki, you can enjoy the friendly night-time atmosphere that attracts so many people to the island every year. An attraction is the only active volcano in the Greek islands - the crater of which you can walk into and view the steaming vents close up!
