Beaches in Hungary

Edit This

Since the country of Hungary is landlocked, you would think that there would be a major lack of Hungary beaches. However, Hungarians have been inventive in using not only the small beaches along lakes and rivers, but also man-made beaches filled with thermal water. These artificial beaches are especially popular in Budapest where summer temperatures can be scorching due to all of the pavement and cement. 

Lake Balaton

Being the largest lake in Central Europe, the majority of locals and tourists in Hungary who want to go to a real beach flock along the shores of Lake Balaton. Go for a swim, bask in the sun, or simply relax and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of this vacation oasis away from the city. Boating and fishing are popular activities there as well. The two most popular beaches of Lake Balaton are Wesselenyi Beach and Golden Shore Beach in Siofok, a resort town with beautiful Victorian architecture. These Hungary beaches are safe and enjoyable for the entire family.

Ramai Beach

Ramai Beach is a man-made beach in Budapest. It has a variety of different pools, waterfalls, and waterslides to enjoy. Unlike some beaches in Budapest, this particular beach only operates during the summer, opening in May and closing at the end of August. Ramai is open from 9 AM to 8 PM every day. An adult ticket for the whole day including use of a locker costs 1,700 HUF on workdays and 1,900 HUF on weekends and holidays. As an added attraction, the Aquincum Museum is very close by and contains ruins of the city of Aquincum that go back 200 years.

Palatinus Beach

This beach is another man-made construction in Budapest. In fact, it is one of the largest artificial beaches in the country. Located on Margaret Island, a small island on the famous Danube River, the pools of Palatinus Beach are filled with the water from natural springs on the island. There are thermal pools, wave pools, and pools especially designed for children all with health stimulating properties due to the water. Normally this beach is open from 9 AM to 8 PM, but on Fridays and Saturdays, there is a night swimming option from 10 PM to 3 AM that costs 2,400 HUF. Admission during normal hours is 2,100 HUF, a little more expensive than most other Hungary beaches.
