Happy Wednesday and welcome back to my little blog. Hope you are all well.
Today’s travel diary from Rhodes is of the 7 Springs.
The 7 Springs is one of the most charming destinations on Rhodes. Seven Springs offers a cool, magical landscape, a real oasis, even in the heat of high summer, a charming retreat in the most lavish of Mediterranean greens. Water flows out of the springs all year around, which forming a small lake. You get to the lake by walking through a narrow 186m-long tunnel. The lake remains replenished thanks to a dam built by the Italians, in order to provide the nearbyt settlement Kolympia with fresh water.
The whole places was lovely but it was a a bit packed as the day went on. I liked that it felt like you were in the UK in a woodland area but with the heat of abroad. I loved that it was something different rather than visiting another beach resort.
The only thing I would suggest is that you NEED hiking shoes or water shoes NOT flip flops. We took our water shoes and we were so grateful that we packed them because the ground is very gravely and not flip flop friendly.
Another thing I would suggest doing if you ever visit here is walking through the tunnel to get to the lake. It’s an experience that made me very scared but a one I’ll never forget and I’m glad that I done. The tunnel is in pitch black darkness as its underground and it is filled with water that comes up to your ankles. You can get to the lake by walking around the long way but the tunnel is quicker.
