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. Plan a Agios Nikolaos trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • The place to go. Walk by the lake and also up the hill, where you can see far away to the sea. Nice view day or night. Good restaurants all around the lake. The shops are near.
