  • At a distance of half an hour approximately 20 km from Agrinio, the road descends to the height of the beach of the Lake. There is a calm, soothing, a little melancholic, has 3-4 shops that you can drink coffee or drink or to eat. In summer there are parasols and sun loungers as the Lake is ideal for swimming, at least in the area we visited in Dogri position.
