Breathtaking!

It doesn't matter you can get there only by car or with excursion. The incredible, breathtaking view at almost 360º is worth it! Besides, you can have a good rest at the lake just 10 minutes away.

A beautiful, charming place with ancient history.

If you are around you absolutely must come here. The road to this place is already beautiful and picturesque. On-site there is a beautiful walk to the beach surrounded by rocks with the ruins of an ancient temple. Unique and beautiful because of its location. Above, the lighthouse is also worth a visit.

Well worth the drive.

We visited this spot perhaps twenty years ago and spent the afternoon sunbathing and swimming by the small beach and strolling around the ruins of the temple of Hera. Since then, there have been further extensive excavations of the site, and if you are interested in archaeology, I heartily recommend the drive out here.
There is a well-sized parking area just before the lighthouse, which, on the late afternoon when we visited, had several other vehicles including a tour bus parked. The one untypical thing I noticed was a posted warning about not leaving any valuables in your car - they've obviously had problems there.
A couple of other small points to mention: once in the water, from the beach, it gets deep quickly, and, as I've noted elsewhere, there seem to be an excess of stray dogs in this area, that can become a nuisance begging for food.

Great place with great views. We were here in January - no people, peace and quiet. Can spent hours sitting and relaxing on the rocks. If you become bored, just couple of meters away the ruins of ancient temple, where you will spend your time studding ancient history.

Well worth the drive out to see the point and the lighthouse, you will pass by a lake with a small entrance form the sea, good for swimming.

Not only the lighthouse to see
Aug 2018 • Family
Once in Voulagmeni Lake area it is a good idea to go till the end of the road and park near the lighthouse. Before climbing a road to the lighthouse you can also walk around remains of the ancient settlement just beneath the lighthouse. It is well paved and supported by signs and explanations. You can also (and I suspect this may be one of the major attractions) descent to the beach and spend some time by the sea. The lighthouse is not large but the view (as with many lighthouses in the world) is majestic - we spend quite some time enjoying it.

Great area to visit, apart from the lighthouse there are ancient ruins well preserved and an old harbor with a great beach to swim. The view from the lighthouse is breath taking!
