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

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

The lago is super-nice with several sandy beaches for wonderful "refreshing" swimming in the clear but COLD lake.

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
