Gyenesdiás is a lovely holiday resort village only 100km from the western border of Hungary and 1 km from Balaton Airport in Sármellék. If you enjoy swimming and water sports or just like to lie on the beach and sunbathe, you won’t need to walk too far. The closest beach is just a few minutes away on foot. The beaches in Gyenesdiás are very nice and well-maintained. If you are interested in Hungarian culture don’t miss Festetics Castle in Keszthely. This is the 4th largest castle in Hungary. Today it is home to a museum. The adjacent monument has a nice protected and well-looked after garden. Lake Hévíz is located near the western end of Lake Balaton, five miles from Keszthely. It is the largest thermal lake in the world (47,500 square meters in area). The flow of water is very strong and the lake is believed to be completely replenished each day. The waters are reputed to have curative effects, and there is a thriving health tourism industry in the area. Gyenesdiás is the perfect destination in western Balaton as there are many things to see and do both in summer and in winter. In wintertime you can even skate or windsurf on the frozen beaches of Lake Balaton!
