Alan Rogers Review
A holiday anywhere on the shore of Lake Balaton almost equates to being beside the sea. With a length of 77 kilometres and a surface area of 600 sq.km. it is the largest freshwater lake in western and central Europe. The quieter, less commercial southern end of Balaton provides the location for this very acceptable 5.5 hectare naturist site with direct access to the lake. The 217 numbered, flat, grass touring pitches, each with electricity (16A), plus 100 for tents, also with the possibility of electricity, are of a good size. Well spaced, mature trees provide a degree of shade.
A unique circular pier, that doubles as a sunbathing area, permits access to the shallow waters. One has to walk almost 200 m. into the lake for a suitable swimming depth. Canoes, dinghies and windsurfing are all very popular. This is a quiet site with no entertainment programme, but possibly two or three social evenings during the season. Within an acceptable driving distance one can visit Festetics mansion at Keszthely and the internationally famous hot water lake at Heviz. Kanyavar island at Kis-Balaton provides an excellent location for birdwatching. Only limited English is spoken.
