Lake Ohrid is a beautifull freshwater lake - clean, clear and fresh. There are many villages around the lake but also quite a lot of beaches you can visit and hire a sun chair and relax all day. My recommendation though, being here twice is to hire one of the catamarans in Ohrid and go for an entire day. We... More

What a hidden, little known gem. Lake Ohrid, which borders Macedonia and Albania, is surrounded by mountains. The water is so clear that you cam see down through it to a depth of about 30 feet. It is estimated to be one of the oldest lakes in the world at about 1.5 million years old.

I have never seen a lake with such bright and clear water, surrounded by a beautiful nature and mountains. There is no mass tourism yet which makes it a pleasure to spend time on the water, in the water or next to the water. It nice to take a boat and let you surprise you to see the land from... More

Lake Ohrid is definitely worth a visit for a relaxing yet busy holiday. It has many different ways to keep the kids busy and still find a peaceful place to relax and slow down the rush of life.

We didn't know much about Macedonia before travelling there for a week and staying in Lagadin on Lake Ohrid. It was absolutely beautiful! The lake itself is calm and crystal clear surrounded by tree covered mountains, I have travelled extensively but the vistal and serenity of lake Ohrid took my breath away. You can walk around the shores of the... More

Beautiful! If you're in Ohrid itself (or near by).... The waters around the lake edge are crystal clear and warm in Summer. Check out Cuba Libre Beach, Kadmo and Bella Vista for a day out on the water - swimming is higly recommended if its a warm day or take a taxi boat out to st John at Kaneo for... More
