  • Time:  34m
  • Distance:  26 Km

Lake Vouliagmeni, in the heart of the Athenian Riviera, is the hidden treasure of Attica’s nature. Situated only a few kilometres from the city centre. nthis rare geological phenomenon is included in Greece’s national NATURA 2000 network. Its current spectacular shape has probably been created during Hellenistic years. It is assumed that a huge vol­ume of hot water was running inside the cave causing the erosion of the walls and forcing the roof to collapse and submerge, giving the lake its present name –Vouliagmeni from the Greek word “vouliazo” that means to submerge. Lake Vouliagmeni is included in the official list of Greece’s Natural Thermal Spas. Its brackish waters, rich in salts and minerals, have a temperature between 22 to 29 degrees all year round. Source:
