On the southern shore of the "Hungarian Sea", water lovers can enjoy more than 2 km of well kept, free beaches.

At the beach you can play (free) water soccer, tennis or beach volleyball as well as enjoy a giant slide. There are surfboards and pedal boats available for rent. In addition to the free beach, there are also possibilities for water fun at Napfény ("sunlight") Beach, which is situated directly on the shore of the lake. This aquatic complex is sure to provide hours of fun for both children and adults. Of course there is a swimming pool, but you can also enjoy various saunas, a steam bath, solarium and massage. The pools are heated so you can swim in cold weather as well. The latest sensation of Napfény are the 4 broad giant slides which have proven to be quite popular.
