After the capital city Budapest, the region of Balaton (also called the ‘Hungarian sea’) is the second most popular tourist destination in Hungary. The Balaton, is the largest freshwater lake in Central Europe, and a true natural treasure, attracting visitors throughout the year. In the summer months, it is mainly visited by beach lovers, while recreational and conference hotels welcome guests all year round. For those who are fond of sports (cycling, hiking, sailing) the area offers great possibilities from early spring until late autumn.
At the southern shore of Balaton the water is shallow, warming up quickly in the summer. Thanks to its sandy beaches, this side of the lake is a popular holiday destination for families with children. The ‘capital’ of the southern side is Siófok. The 70-km long southern shore extends from Balatonaliga to Balatonszentgyörgy.
The Szántód – Tihany ferry transportation is the only one ferry crossing on Lake Balaton.
