Following the 1996–1997 seismic unrest scientists started monitoring the volcano. Nisyros volcanic complex éncompasses the area between Nisyros and Kos island.

The island has many Orthodox churches, as well as 4 monasteries (currently not served by monks).

Nisyros is reachable by ferries from Kos and Piraeus-Athens. During summer season are offered daily boat tours from Kardamena (Kos Island). Nisyros also has a heliport.
