  • It is one of the richest and most beautiful wetlands of Greece that belongs to the Natura 2000 list, protected habitats and wetlands in Greece. There is abundant birdlife in the area, for lovers of birdwatching. The Vistonida is a dependency of vatopedi monastery. For lovers of religious tourism there are two churches in the Lake that is visited. I believe that is one of the must see of the region.

  • It is the fourth largest lake in Greece, with a total area of 45 sq. km with a maximum length of 12.5 km. and a maximum width of 7 km. This Lake flow into three small rivers that supply water. The average depth is estimated to be 4 meters. The Lake connects with the sea, the Bistwniko Bay, (or Porto Lagos), through narrow channels, and because of the seawater that enters the pond water has salinity changes. The shallow waters are ideal for ichthyotrofikes activities, the exploitation of fish movements to and from the Interior of primarily for multiplication. So around the canals connecting the Lake to the sea have developed great Lake ichthyotrofikes activities with historical origins, from the residents of the area near the village of Vistonida Landscape Glykoneri. Lake Vistonis. jpg Lake surrounded by reeds (phragmites), has bands tamarisks (tamarix sp.), salt meadows, riverine forests and fresh water ponds and wet meadows.
