A lovely lake, easy to walk around, but with several free bathing areas available. One bar was on the lakeside with bathing from it for a minimum spend of 2 euros. Lovely.

Delightful spot for a picnic, coffee or lunch on the shores of Banyoles lake. The water is crystal clear and good for swimming & paddling. The lake also serves as the training ground for Olympic rowers.

What a beautiful spot to visit. I came while the sun was setting and let's just say- the pictures were to die for!

Good value, eco-friendly boat ride for approximately 1 hour across and around the lake. Beautiful scenery, very peaceful, with English commentary for 7 Euros perhead.
