Just amazing!

Clear water, amazing views. I maybe just missed more 'organised' beaches (sun beds, bar, food, music, wifi).

Put lake Ohrid on your "must visit" list straight away. I stayed for two days in Ohrid, but are definitly coming back. If you are a couple, make sure to stay in the Old town!

It was a great wonderfull lake. At nicght you see the cities glinster, by rain and thunderstorm you see the Lake vanish and with the sun on the lake and clouths above it, makes a excelent seeing especially on sunrise and sunset.

We had a boat ride on the lake the a walk back to our hotel through the town. A little hilly but well worth the effort A Beautiful lake to sit by and watch the world go by perhaps with an ice cream.

Beautiful, vast lake, that offers view, swimming, bathing, parties, .... Best bathing is out of the city of Ohrid (Pestani, Lagadin, ...) - always full of people along the lake, but you need a car or some other transport. Be ready for quite cold, but fresh water.

You'd think you were by the coast. Great weather when we went (Aug 2016). Lake isn't particularly cold like other mountain lakes. Definitely worth visiting!
