Lake Voulismeni, Agios Nikolaos

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
Water Body
According to local legend, the goddess Athena regularly bathed in Lake Voulismeni. Renowned internationally for its curative powers, the lake is located in one of Crete's more relaxed seaside towns. The circular body of water is 64 m (210 ft) deep and only 134 m (440 ft) wide. Fed from below by a natural hot spring, the water maintains a constant temperature around 25 C (77 F), and contains high levels of elements that relieve ailments like neuralgia, arthritis, and sciatica. Before you have a dip, hike to the top of the surrounding cliffs, which offer sweeping views over the treetops and out to the sea. Arrange your visit to Lake Voulismeni and discover more family-friendly attractions in Agios Nikolaos using our Agios Nikolaos tour planner.
