I've been up here quite a few times now and I love it as a place to visit. Beautiful clear water, lots of bird and fish. You can swim in the lake (in cordoned off areas), go on boat cruises, hire a rowboat and hire bikes and pedalos. Or you can just get a coffee and chill.

Whilst it was 32 degrees when we visited, the vast numbers of plane tree lined walkways offered shelter and relative coolness. You can walk, cycle, swim, take a boat trip, hire a rowing boat or just find a quiet spot to soak up the view. A bit like being in Lake Windermere during extreme global warming!! Lovely place, an hours easy drive from say Calognes.

Very buzzy on weekends, full of families out strolling. It's quieter during the week. Lovely to walk around with plenty of benches to sit and watch the rowing and water sports.
Don't forget your insect repellent in the summer months!

Banyoles is a beautiful lake near Girona, and only around 1,5 hour drive from Barcelona. It takes 1,5 - 2 hours walk to go around the lake and see the natural diversity of Estany Banyoles. There is a public beach near the Parc Draga, and a cycle path. The walk around the lake is very enjoyable, with stunning views. The path goes through the forest, so I felt very close to the nature. I was just watching the little ducks, the water lilies and the crystal clear water with the mountains in the background. Breathtaking scenery. I went to the tourist office near the lake, and asked a map before the walk. They were very helpful and they provided information on the local and regional tourist attractions.

Inland from the Costa Brava, and just north west of Girona, the Estuary de Banyoles provides a great place to relax and take a breath during a hot Spanish summer, away from the masses along the coast. The fairly small elongated lake is surrounded by great landscapes, and has a walkway around it making for an attractive walk or cycle. There are a number longer ways nearby, which extend into the surrounding bush which are well worth considering. Banyoles itself is an attractive town, and along the waterfront are a number of restaurants overlooking the lake. We visited in August during a week of temperatures rising above 38 degrees, so a stop for a number of hours was much appreciated.

Lovely walk or cycle. Would be nice with a few more places to sit by the lake. As you walk around, there are large sections that cannot be accessed. Perhaps this is to better protect the wildlife though.

The lake is beautiful especially before sunset. We rented a rowing boat and rowed and swam in the lake. Another day we rented bicycles and biked around it. Worth visiting and great for sporting activities.

Lovely quiet place - you can walk a long way around the lake or get a boat trip. Swimming allowed in the lake also. Nice restaurants.
