It is mostly frequented by loud families in crowded buses, and one area is completely kitsch with plastic boats and the like. But there is a larger area that you can visit, which is untouched. We went with our mountain bikes and had a blast.

Journey quite long. Not worthwhile to visit unless you would like to explore Lagoi as well. The collected water is bluish in colour and the place quite spectacular.

This place is so beautiful. The colour of the water is amazing!Unfortunately it is not a place you can swim although they do have some on-the-water activities for children. Wonderful for photos, walking and viewing the scenery plus there are food and drink stalls.
