The waters of the lake, so clear and transparent from afar, give the impression that one could drink them. Keri Lake was known from antiquity until recently for the natural pitch which welled up from underground and was used for caulking boats. There are a number of wells and springs near the lake which have now dried up. Nevertheless, the spring of Herodotus can still be seen by the visitor. At the charming little coffee shops on the beachfront one can relax and enjoy oneself. Caiques leave from here for the caves, the rocks and the bays around Marathia.
