Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Round Lake, which arose on the site of the crater of the volcano, said up to 700 m depth. Looks wonderful. Along the shore there are cafes and restaurants. In Agios Nikolas is worth a trip to look at this Lake.

  • Restaurants around the lake have similar food qualities but some are more expensive despite the same views. Ignore the touting waiters and research all the menu prices first.
