The Greek seaside resort of Loutraki is found on the Gulf of Corinth, in Corinthia, and is best known for its natural springs and therapeutic spas. The term Loutraki derives from the Greek word ‘loutro’, which means bath or spa. The town was destroyed in an earthquake during 1928 but was rebuilt shortly after.
The Loutraki Thermal Spa has Jacuzzis, hydro massages and hot tubs where you can experience the thermal waters for €10, as well as Hammams, saunas and massages which are offered at an extra cost of €15. There are indoor and outdoor pools which have a range of temperatures and a breathtaking view of the sea and sunset can be seen at dusk. Before entering the complex, a medical examination is taken to check that guests are well enough to enter the mineral waters.
After visiting the thermal spa, you may wish to see Vouliagmeni Lake, a nice alternative to the beach that’s mostly used for extreme water sports. However, free sunbeds are available beside the water, where you can relax and enjoy the views. Local cafes and restaurants are also nearby.
