Beach Holiday

Beach holidays in Hungary, first of all, are associated with the famous lake Balaton. See toppharmacyschools for geography, climate and cuisine in Hungary.

At the same time, the beaches of the southern and northern shores of the lake have significant differences. The bottom of the northern coast at the entrance to the water goes down significantly and already after 30 meters the depth exceeds human height. This part of the coast is more recommended for good swimmers or families with older children.

There is a very pleasant place in Keszthely, excellent equipped beaches are also available near the villages of Balatonfured, Tihany and Zanka.

The south side of the coast is perfect for families with small children. When entering the water, the depth begins to increase very smoothly, and in some places on the coast you can walk more than a hundred meters without having to swim.
