Lake Vouliagmeni will truly surprise your family. The lake is recognized as a wonder of nature because of its unique appearance and the surroundings.
It is also known for its thermal springs, healing benefits and mythical history. Due to its biodiversity it is declared a Natural Heritage Site and a protected area. The lake is surrounded by beach chairs and umbrellas and there is a cafe-bar-restaurant that serves excellent food. There is a shaded playground with toys for young children near the restaurant tables. The lake is fine for children who master swimming because it is deep and it is not possible to touch the bottom. The generous fish of the lake are might even give you a free fish spa!
At Lake Vouliagmeni Spa you can participate in yoga, aqua aerobics or just take a relaxing massage. You can also hike or cycle around the lake and admire beautiful views or visit the nearby Faskomilia Hill or Hill of Sage. We leave it to you to decide!

One of our favourite outings when summer is on its way. The lake has its own way of holding the attention of both young and ‘older kids’, so they all have a good time.
It is such a nice feeling not to have to worry about the children while enjoying your swim or coffee. The site is totally safe, and the playground and the lake keeps them occupied for hours – well, at least until they get hungry!
