I already write about this lake at Tarnita review and this one Fantanele (Belis) lake is the last and higher altitude lake in area. Very nice with lot of possibilities (fish, swim, sail, walk, love < joke>) Many pensions (small hotels) also restaurants, with traditional food and drink you loved I'm sure...

The Waze app took us through a crappy way at first. Then we found an other way, and got there. All in all, we enjoyed. Beautiful place and had a great time! Danny kofman.

So peaceful, so quiet and relaxing. You can just breathe in and take in the atmosphere and be one with nature.

Been there in August 2015. The whole area is beautiful and fascinating. There aren't many people in the lake, even in the hot season, and the silence is magical.

You have to visit one of the largest lakes in Romania. It`s a great place for water sports or for having a tent out week-end with friends.

Beautiful view, fresh air It's dangerous to swim there because they are strong water currents and water is very deep

This little piece of heaven is the perfect place for relaxing holidays far from the city's busy life.
