Health and Spa, Kimolos

There are hot springs in at least two areas (Prassa and Agioklima), but they have not been developed yet. The high temperature of the water (46–50C) was the first clue to the existence of underground geothermal reservoirs, later confirmed by drilling. The heat stored in these reservoirs is an exploitable form of energy. Today, the geothermal energy is used for water desalination plants. However, it is likely that there are deeper and hotter reservoirs, which could be used directly for the production of electricity.
