Venture just outside of the capital to soak in the healing, mineral-rich waters of Lake Vouliagmeni. Springs up to 100 m (328 ft) deep are the source of the thermal water, which is between 22-29 C (72-84 F) year-round. Try out the fish spa, where small fish nibble gently on the dead cells of your hands and feet, leaving your skin clean and refreshed. If swimming doesn't interest you, yoga and pilates classes are also offered. The area surrounding the lake is good for hiking, biking, and walking among tall pine trees.

Wow! do not miss. Of all the attractions outside the center of Athens, this is a must-do attraction, unequivocally. If you come in warm months, don't give up. An amazing lake, clear and with all the best facilities and service. It is a lake with water at a fairly constant temperature. There are sunbeds, tables and chairs and even some individual double beds on the waterfront (you have to book them in advance). There are small fish in the water that eat the dry skin. At first it tickles like crazy, but you get used to it pretty quickly. There is enough space for everyone and you don't have to rush and run early in the morning. The recommended and discounted way to get to the place from the center of Athens is by metro red line and get off at the last stop - Elliniko From there take a taxi or Uber at a cost of about 12-14 euros and you are there. Don't wait for line 122, it never comes. In any case, there is a restaurant and a bar where you can order food for a sunbed. The toilets are very clean and there are even private and clean showers, take your clothes and shower there! Enjoy!
Wow, what a place. As soon as you get there, you can’t help but be blown away by the location. We booked in advance as it does get busy, we went on a Friday in June and it wasn’t too bad. We hired a double bed with curtains and was perfect to keep in the shade. The water was amazing ans the fish nibbling at your feet was a bit strange to start with but you get used to it. The food was great and the cold beers were tasty. Staff were very helpful and offered waiter service to our bed. A great place you can spend the day at, we went the day we were leaving as it’s close to the airport and they had good showers so we could get ready to leave straight from there. Fantastic place and a must visit.
The lake is breathtaking! The water is crystal clear and it has tiny cute fishes that eat your dead skin. There is an entrance fee, which is more expensive than the beach, and the food & drinks aren't cheap either. However, you can spend the whole day there, you can get a table if you arrive early or a sunbed. There's a restaurant with a few options, they are a bit limited to be honest. I had a smoothie bowl for breakfast, which was delicious, and a vegan burger but I come with half of the thing it said it had, but they still charged me full price. I recommend ordering food before 12:30pm because afterwards is almost impossible to get a waiter. The bathrooms and showers are clean, there re a few lockers to keep your valuables, but they aren't as big to fit a luggage. The WiFi was pretty good and I managed to do my work from there.
Not enough words to describe this experience! Booked the private area, got great service and enjoyed it in full! Thanks to all staff! Worth visiting when in Athens
I lives not too far from the place so I decided to come and check it! We arrived on the weekdays so there are less crowded! Overall the place is super nice salty sea water are so refreshing. The lake and landscape itself preserves well and clean. But FYI it's a little bit pricey for everything..like foods and not many changing room and restroom I thinks!
