The city of Athens is located within a basin and it is surrounded by four mountains. We can find five major rivers running through Athens and five major lakes are located within the urban structure of the city. Vouliagmeni lake, which means ‘sunken lake’, is something more than a usual urban lake. It is a rare geological phenomenon of unique beauty and a majestic natural spa, just few kilometers away from the centre of Athens. It comprises nature’s therapeutic powers with the Greek inclination for elegance and relaxed enjoyment.
Located less than twenty kilometers from Athens’ centre and with many different ways to access the lake, either by car and taxi or by bus, Vouliagmeni Lake lies across the ‘Athenian Riviera’, a coastal avenue full of sunlight, palm trees and the smell of the sea salt.
The lake’s width is 550 meters and its length is 1825 meters, a natural pool! The temperature of the water of the lake remains through the whole year at 24 Celsius degrees. The thermal waters, an underwater cave which is only partly explored and the lake’s rare and unique flora comprise an unbeatable combination!
A visitor can enjoy the warm therapeutic waters, view the imposing mountain of Hymettus, can swim or simply enjoy one of the finest restaurants in Attica, which is waiting for him or her at the lake-side.
