In the Southern suburb of Athens is a little gem to be discovered: the Vouliagmeni lake in a beautiful natural setting right under the steep rocks of Mount Ymittos. Its waters are always warm (never below 21 Celcius) and are said to have therapeutic virtues. When you enter, small fish will give your feet a tickling spa treatment. It is open for swimming until sunset, and you can also have a drink there. In summer months (May-September), the lighting transforms the lake, caves and cliffs into a magical setting to have a drink after dark. It is also a nice attraction on the way to Cape Sounio.
