If you want to venture just outside of the city for a day I would recommend coming here. This natural salt lake is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Full of the little fish that eat your dead skin, the lake is supposedly where Athena bathed, hence it's healing properties. I don't know about Athena, and I don't know about the science,... More

A week ago my sister held her wedding at lake Vouliagmeni. I think it will remain as the best expirience of my life. The scenary was magical, food was delicious, service was excelent, not a single objection from me or any member of my family, it was simply perfect. All in all I recomend this location for any kind of... More

We went for a swim during our visit to Lake Vouliagmeni. For a not so good swimmer such as myself this was a peaceful, relaxing and almost therapeutic experience. The water was warm and not as salty as the Mediterranean. I found I was able to float unaided ( which I normally cannot do) and doggy paddle breathing with my... More

Very noisy and dirty water which smelled v.bad.Left from there with a skin havier and dirty as ever. Nice place... More

It's located apart from the tourist route. Fantastic place, place of power. Calm and tranquillity. And it smells lavander all around! Lake is warm all the year. If you'd like to swim, you have to pay. There is a lovely restaurant to have a dinner. I think it's ideal place for wedding celebration.

Amazing lake and surroundings! Quiet place with mostly elderly people. The lake has tiny fish that eats the dead skin of your body; not for the squeamish one! Quite expensive to enter, €12 per person. Also the tavern is pricy. You need to take the subway all the way to Ellenikos (end station) then take the 122 bus too Limni... More

Having read recent reviews from other travellers to the lake, and seeing the differences in their stated entry prices (pls see reviews below) I just want to say that today, July 21st, we paid 10e per adult and 5.50e for a child of 9, so I'm not sure how the prices are fixed:) We also had glasses of beer of...

I have been there planning to see an amazing lake ... and I saw actually. But the water was still too cold and all place was just closed. Also it has very small space, even though there were like 20 people for me it was already crowded I cannot imagine what is happening in high season

Went to visit Lake Vouliagmeni in a Sunday. It was packed. There were no places to comfortably sit in the shade and some good areas were reserved for "VIP" guests. The pool was nice and having fish nibble your feet is a novelty, though not everyone's cup of tea. At €13 per person it was over priced.

This is a great little stop off in the middle of a hot day. The lake is fed by volcanic water and is a pleasant temperature to swim in, The entrance fee is a little pricey but the staff are friendly and the showers, changing rooms and toilets are clean and functional. we stopped here during a road trip for...
