Nature and relaxing

A great place for camping, walk or simply relax for a few days. I only visit it during summer, but I believe winter could be even better.

We travelled from Braganca (Portugal) - about an hour's drive - and were taken aback by the beauty of the lake and surrounding landscape. If you're in the vicinity (Spain or Portugal) you won't regret a visit; and make a day of it with a picnic - even better.

Nice place to walk in the nature. Some spots have stunning views! I strongly recomend a visit to "Laguna de los Peces".

Deserves a visit: The lake itself, and the several beaches. The mountain views. Ribadelago Nuevo, as a new town built in the 60s, after the accident with the Dam

Very nice place to stay. Only rather crowdy, we expect it to be more quiet. Although really worthwhile to visit. Lovely swimming water. Our trip back to Spain through Portugal was splendid. Highly recommended

Great water in a beautiful setting. Great place for families. Besides swimming you can hire a paddle boat or a canoe.

The lake is awesome, the nature and wildlife incredible. You can also do some hiking to discover smaller natural lakes.

The lago is super-nice with several sandy beaches for wonderful "refreshing" swimming in the clear but COLD lake. It is in a beautiful mountain setting with some wonderful small Spanish towns around (and Portuguese towns just over the border). The visitor's center has good exhibits. Saw some big trout in the lake but, strangely, no one fishing. We went during... More

Lago de Sanabria is one of my favourite spots in the world... If you´re looking for sun, swimming, water fun, good food, relaxed environment, you MUST go there. A huge lake that offers camping, nature, beautiful surroundings, good food and friendly locals. What can you ask for more??? Enjoy
