This is a lovely place to go for a walk or bike ride (you can hire bikes) on a nice day or if you are feeling romantic there are also horse drawn carriages.

The island is nice for killing time or taking it easy. It is definitely yhe place to go for locals, especially with small children. However, as tourists, I did not find it as a place worth visiting. Budapest has other attarctions to offer

Margaret island lies on Danube between Margit and Arpad bridge. No traffic allowed. Paradise for nature lovers.

Although it was new years eve when we walked around this island you can see that in summer the place would be buzzing as there is so much to do on the island. Sports and outdoor activities in abun dance. There is a cushioned running track (single lane) that joggers use all year round that goes right around the island and it was busy even when we went. There is a hot spring and a very grand hotel and spa reswort on the island too.

One thing.... mind the dog poo!

Margaret Island is a green island in the middle of the vibrant city. In the winter or autumn I always go there for a walk if I wish to clean my mind and stay away from the crowd.
At summer and spring is nice to have a party at Cha-cha-cha or Holdudvar, daytime laying on the sun or pursuing a sport with friends. There are other activities for example you can roll with funny bicycle or find hidden places to make love.:-) Different programs also are available during summertime, like watching a drama at the open-air theater or taking part in the hemp festival.
