Lake Voulismeni, Agios Nikolaos
(4.2/5 based on 1,000+ 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. Arrange your visit to Lake Voulismeni and discover more family-friendly attractions in Agios Nikolaos using our Agios Nikolaos tour planner.

In elachsto time traveling to any point of the city, which has most beautiful peratzades, walking into a vast lake course in Istanbul that is the main attraction. Very good clean Marina with many places for boats.

  • It is the most beautiful spot of Agios Nikolaos and is good for walking day or night. Only attention to motorbikes.

  • Lake Voulismeni-once a small freshwater lake, now combined with the sea channel, located in the center of the city Ajgos Nikolaos of Greece, on the island of Crete. Has a shape similar to the wheels, the maximum width of 137 metres and depth of 64 meters. Apparently bathed there Aphrodite. In addition to the quiet Lake Voulismeni offers a wide selection of traditional Cretan restaurants spreads around its shores, where you can taste great local dishes. A beautiful place in the day and at night.
