Situated at the southern most part of the bay of Laganas, Keri Lake is an unspoiled and quiet fishing village with a charming harbour and a small pebble/sand beach.
The history of Keri Lake goes back to ancient times and is noted by Herodotus for its natural pitch wells and springs, one of which bears the name “Herodotus Pigi” or Herodotus Springs, from which flows natural spring water as well as pitch.
Surrounded on three sides by pine clad hills Keri Lake offers pleasant walking and wildflower spotting opportunities as well as stunning excursions by boat to nearby Marathonisi Island and the famous Keri Caves.
Visitors will be amazed by the giant olive trees that can be seen in areas of the Lake, many of which are over 1000 yrs old. Also of interest are the natural sulphur springs that occur in the sea near Marathia and are said to be therapeutic.
