We were looking forward to this visit to Heraion after spending time at the beautiful lake of Voulgamenti near Loutraki. It is certainly worth the trip, you follow the signs up from the lake & there is a small car park (only accessible by car)....More

Quite big and reasonably well explained area with Heraion, cysterns in use until Roman times. Small beach (snorkling around the rocks - there's actually fish there), lighthouse, and sheltered view up on the cape. Good place to let kids explore.
