Tapping Into Greece’s Hidden Wealth: Our Ten Best Natural Hot Springs

Greece is gradually discovering the potential tourist goldmine of its plentiful, and in most cases little-known, natural hot springs.

Due to Greece’s unique geology, there are more than 700 natural hot springs dotted all over the country — and 84 of them are officially recognized as having healing properties.

A recent study found that Greece’s thermal spring facilities could triple their revenues, to some 390 million euros per year, if they could be upgraded.

Greek travelers are willing to spend 45 euros on average per day for accommodation, food and spa treatments and stay for up to eight days.

The Greek Reporter presents ten outstanding natural spas located across Greece.

Kyllini

The Thermal Springs of Kyllini (also called Lintzi) are located in a region of infinite beauty. They are situated nine kilometers (5.6 miles) away from Kyllini, secluded in the woods. As one approaches the Kyllini Baths, the forest becomes denser and the tall trees extend all the way to the sandy beach.

The Kyllini Baths have been renowned since ancient times for their hot springs. The waters, the steam and even the mud under the water are ideal for helping cure arthritis, asthma and skin diseases.

I went to see the springs and it was quite a disappointment. It was neglected and run down, but as the article suggests, it could be developed into a great attraction, in a lovely area.

You're not the only one who thinks so, Roger:

Kyllini Thermal Springs Get Green Light for Operation

Greek Tourism Minister Harry Theoharis has given the green light to the operation of the Kyllini thermal springs paving the way for inclusion in the ministry’s alternative tourism strategy.

The project has been on the backburner since 2014.

The ministry has stepped up its efforts to tap into the spa and wellness tourism segment, moving ahead with the recognition and licencing process of therapeutic springs across Greece.
