Seven Springs

Distance from Rhodes City: 30Km Add your review about Seven Springs

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, swamped in greenery. Waters come out from the springs all year around, which end up in a small lake. You get to the lake walking through a narrow tunnel of 186m. The lake exists thanks to a dam built by the Italians, in order to provide the nearby Kolymbia with fresh water.
The area of Seven Springs and the nearby forests are suitable for walking.

Walking from Seven Springs to Tsambika Monastery
posted on October 10, 2012 by solvej allen
We took the regular bus between Rhodos and Lindos (runs every half hour) and walked the three km from the highway down to Seven Springs. Using the GPS in my husband's phone we then hiked 4 km through the forest to the Tsampika Monastery. The first bit was a bit of a scramble through dense forest, so it should not be attempted without a GPS. We connected to gravel paths and hiked up the back of the mountain just north of the monastery and were rewarded with amazing views of the bay below. Actually came out on the highway and found the monastery a bit downhill north of this mountain, but even if climbing the mountain was the result of a slight miscalculation. The view was worth every extra step. October was plenty hot for this trip, it probably should not be attempted during the summer months, as it is too strenuous for dense heat.
Picturesque and a must

Went last august 2011 really enjoyed it took over an hour on moped to find it but well worth it. The green bluey water was lovely. Picturesque and a must is to walk through the tunnel.
Well worth the drive

I was there about 2 months ago. It was one of my favorite places in Greece. Wear good hiking shoes and bring some good aqua shoes to walk through the tunnel. The water was running so fast, it seemed like a foot massage. I climbed out to the waterfall and took pictures. I don't understand some of the less positive comments. I thought it was well worth the drive.
Visited May 2011

Visited May 2011. Well worth a visit. Tunnel should be one way traffic only!! Forest walk becomes a scramble higher up.
Water in tunnel about 10 inches deep fast flowing. Signposting to lake poor.

Ive been coming to Rhodes for 13-14 years from 18 months, im now 18, and each year we go to Epta Piges without fail becuase of its beauty and because of the long tunnel of cold water.
I read a thing bout epta piges on some website, sayin the laake has never dried out, thats a lie cuz 3 years ago it was (probs cuz of the amount of shoes a flip flops)
Its just becoming a race to get the epta piges before the Italians all go there, otherwise its a fight for car parking spaces and a chance to get down the tunnel!!!
I would deffinately recomend it to anyone who visits this beautiful place, Also on reccomendation is the old 1930s ex-military hospitals and army base at profitis illyassos and also Petaloudes (Butterfly Vally)
Beautifull

Tunnel

Went to seven springs the day before yesterday (12th May 09). Walked through the tunnel. All was in order. Water was flowing and the lake was full.
A very enjoyable visit.

This location is no longer what it was. Water no longer runs through the tunnel and the reservoir is drained and far from picturesque. What water there is looks stagnant. Thankfully I had a rental car and just went somewhere else. Feel very sorry for those that paid to visit by bus and had no choice. Have been there a number of times before so to see it as run down as it was was very dissappointing
Absolutely brilliant

Absolutely brilliant the tunnel under the ground is ace. we go under it every time we visit. And the grounds are really relaxing. Dont miss it when you go.
Nice place! :)

I visited the seven springs in October 2006, and it was a fantastic place, a calm and relaxing atmosphere, and also some exotic birds. If you go there, you really should walk through the tunnel, its around 200 m longs, and I wouldn´t recommend it if you suffer from claustofobia, because its pitch black, water running under your feet, and its really narrow... but if you want something special to remember when you come home, go for it! Its said that if you go through the tunnel you loose all your fears and u will be 20 years younger, so now am 0 years then :)
One of the most serene places on the island

One of the most serene places on the island, totally different to all other tourist attractions. The litttle restaurant there has excellent greek food and occasionally there are small stalls selling little gifts there too. And there is a family of peacocks there too, who wander round in the carpark
