Dont be fulled by the photos, it is nice but over rated, not good if you do not want to pay an swim, but if you are around to peninsula opposite it which is short drive away, nice beaches and nice area for swim at the end of Appollonos road.

Defiantly worth visiting during your stay in Athens. We got the metro to the furthest point (Red line)then took the bus which stopped right outside the lake, as soon as you enter it's magical, very stunning a very special place. Was free to enter the lake but will cost if you want to swim around 9 Euro. For February the... More

Wonderful and definetely to be visited. I don't rate with five stars just because I consider incredibly stupid its being private, which means you have to pay to take a bath!

Have been to Vouliagmeni many times and always promised I would spend a day at 'the Lake'. This time I made it and it was well worth the wait! Spent a lazy day floating around in the thermal springs with little fish nibbling all my dead skin away. Imagine 'Fish Doctor' tank times a million!! There are cabanas, therapists on... More

We stumbled upon this on a trip to Athens. I was travelling with two of my kids and wanted to go somewhere different for the day. From when we arrived we enjoyed every minute. Took a bus there and it stopped right outside the entrance. Very clean there. The fish that nibble on you was a different experience for us... More

The lake was easily accessed. Ambient seat entry available for those that need it, but you probably need staff to assist. Entry cost adults 9 euro, child 6 euro, family entry 2A&2C @ 24 euro. Although chilly out, water was warm and tiny fish did their job of nibbling the dead skin if you stay still long enough, it feels... More

This is a nice relaxing place. Water is relatively warm all during the year and swim is refreshing. The extra is the natural 'fish spa', which is a nice experience

Its lovely and quiet. The water temperature was about 20 degree but it was still chilly. I had to swim around to middle of the lake where it was a little bit warmer, though it was a pleasant swim. The fish spa in the lake gave me new experience, a bit ticklish at first but I got used to it... More

This lake is beautiful! The water is a bit cold, but the swim is still enjoyable. There are three cats that seem to live there and are well fed. The black cat was very friendly and likes to be petted. The best time to go relax at the lake is in the morning.
