You could bring your swimmers if the weather is good!
DIRECTIONS to the start of the run:
go South hashers!
Get onto either Leoforos Poseidonos, Leoforos Vouliagmenis or Leoforos Varis and head South for the coast. Once out of town you will pass through the suburb of VOULA and just carry on driving by the coast.
From where Leoforos Poseidonos, Leoforos Vouliagmenis and Leoforos Varis converge the distance to the Lake is 3.4k [see snip below]
Follow signs for Limni Vouliagmenis – you will need to turn off left, there is a road leading down to the lake do not take this but find the car park just off the main road.
See attachments for more info.
Red line metro to Elliniko then catch the 122 bus outside the station and it will drop you off next to the lake on the opposite the road.
