The caldera is not suitable for climbing because of loose volcanic rocks, but on the east side there are three organized climbing fields on the mountain. At Perivolos there is excellent quality limestone that will satisfy fans of the sport. Because of its east-facing summer fans do select only the afternoon for climbing. On the beach of Perissa at the edge are rocks that are often chosen for climbing mainly in the morning because they are in the shadows. Finally routes in Kamari are the path for Ancient Thira that is selected for climbing mainly in the afternoon.
