My wife and I visited the lake when also going to see the waterfall, which I have reviewed separately. We went to the lake with an element of excitement as the pictures looked impressive that we had seen. On travelling through the village you join...More

Walked from the car park as road only suitable for 4x4's or quad bikes. It states the lake is 2k but is actually 4k. The walk is pleasant enough but the lake turned out to be a green smelly let down. Be aware that the...More

To visit the lake you really need a 4 wheel drive vehicle as the road is rough and unmade. We did see people hiking up, but although we enjoy walking we felt it was too hot to be sensible. The lake did boast a large...More

Spending one or two days inside the Thassos island is well worth. The mountain and the lake are great for one-day hiking or picnics. The lake itself is great for nature lovers who like quiet locations without tourists.
