It is in the middlle of the Danube River. It is quiet and nicely landscaped with lots of trees and seasonal flowers. There is a hotel there. With tree-lined walkways to jog or walk and enjoy the river at the same time. Do bring mosquito repellent. I was eaten alive.

Catch tram no 2 to the end of the line and walk across the bridge to the island. What a beautiful relaxing place. We walked the length of the island and had coffee at the Kamilla Coffee House. Lovely gardens and plenty seating areas. You can get the bus back or walk. Bikes for hire too.

Quite a large island with lots to see and do We saw a fountain which was in time to music. Two baths, one which the local Hungarian swim team use to practice. A bird sanctuary and plenty more. Stayed a full day here and used it to have a picnic.

Arguably the best place for recreation and jaunts. You can also board ships of the Budapest Transport Company and do a Danube cruise with a modest 1.8 EUR ticket (you pay it once aboard).

We went via public transport and (slowly) made our way from the South to the North of the island - its about a couple of KM and is very pretty. Didn't go at night but it looks like it would be fun. Plenty of different transport to hire and things to do, at cost, but its nice to just walk around and chill out.
