Vouliagmeni Lake, in the heart of the Athenian Riviera, is the hidden treasure of Attica's nature. Situated on an idyllic landscape, this rare geological phenomenon is waiting to be discovered. The lake's brackish waters which are continuously replenished both by the sea and the underground thermal springs offer a natural and unique thermal spa experience.

Swimming at the Lake is an holistic experience all-year round. The water’s healing properties and the stable temperature, combined with the benefits swimming offers to the body and soul, promise a unique leisure activity. The Lake’s water gushes from springs 50 to 100 meters deep and have a temperature ranging between 22 to 29 degrees Celsius throughout the year.

Even more the small fish called Garra Rufa, also known as Doctor Fish or Spa Fish, indigenous and natural inhabitants of the Lake, promises visitors a unique peeling experience.

Unfortunately I discovered this place too late to spend more time there. It was before my departure back home that I made a short visit. Some guests were swimming and I saw the fish in the clear water. In February it seems to be heaven there. A reason to go back and spend several days there to relax but.... off... More

Beautiful place but the service and staff is below average. We ordered coffee and "fresh homemade lemonade without sugar" as the menu stated. When the lemonade arrived it was extremely sweet with sweeteners. I called the waitress and advised that the menu stated it was without sugar and she rudely advised that this is what the bottled drink stated. She... More

The moment you walk in you get the vibes... The lake exudes a mysterious yet enchanting vibe that cannot be easily explained in words. You must visit and, even better, get in the water in order to experience it. Service and amenities are quite average though, staff is obsolete and not very polite (with the exception if those at parking... More

We did go into the lake (despite the look of the water), although i must admit we always remained shoulder above out of the water. The experience with the fish was quite cool, its amazing just to watch them. Super ticklish at first but then you do get use to it, but you have to be super still, any slight... More

My visit to Vouliagmeni Lake was a surprisingly nice experience. I did not swim in its healing waters due to my phobia for lake water but I had my evening coffee while enjoying the astonishing lake view and the sense of luxury it creates. Visitors have to pay an entrance fee but the experience is rewarding.

A visit in October to Athens doesn't necessarily leave you any dreams for a good swim in the sea. But thanks to the lake in Vouliagmeni I could make my sweet swimming dream come true even in October! Water temperature is 25 degrees Celsius all year round. Personally, I didn't feel 25 as hot as it sounds but it certainly... More

Lake Vouliagmeni is a natural lake which provides spa like effect. The temperature year round is between 20 - 29C. We were there in Nov and the temp was still 23C. The lake has Garra Rufa, or Doctor Fish. As soon as you dip your feet in the water, hundred of fish will start eating your dead skin. Initially the... More
