It’s obvious that nobody walks around this pond completely, as it is overgrown at the high point of the path. If it was clear, you coul get round in less than 5 minutes. The best thing about it was that we saw a kingfisher, which...More

This was relaxing to look at. The endless stream of dragon flies of all colours were epic and watching the shoals of fish was fun especially when the fish were jumping out of the pond to try and eat the dragon flies!

We visited here on Sunday 26th August as we had been in Sami and were on our way to Melissani Caves and we saw the sign for the Lake. It takes a good stretch of the imagination to classify this pond as a lake. Interesting...More

The lake itself is nice and looks fine, but not sensational. But the history and the way it is formed is rather special. Nice place for a cup of coffee while driving by or a dinner if you stay near.

Came here almost everyday to see the ducks and goose. It's a lovely and calm place to chill out. Don't forget to give the birds some bread :)

This little lake is a very pretty place to visit and always has a few ducks swimming around. There are a couple of benches to sit and relax and a restaurant next door. Take some time to just sit and take in the scenery.
