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.

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.
