“So Scenic”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We were staying by Lake Bala at Llangower, which meant that everytime we went out we had to drive along its shores. So scenic and peaceful. In fact you can drive all the way around we many different fabulous views.

“Excellent for camping and sailing”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

This lake is an excellent lake if you are looking to sail. I took the family and towed a sail boat and spent a week camping there. The weather was brilliant and the winds fair. There is an active catamaran community who even allowed me to crew a 22 foot cat. Fastest thing I've sailed so far. The camp site next to the water is great. The ease of launching and recovery is brilliant. If you are into sailing this is the place to go.

“Great for biking !”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

My Partner and I went cycling around the lake, hoping for an offroad path. There was none, however we discovered a little back road which ran all the way around the back of the lake, when we met the main road there was a cycle lane so it was safe. stunning views and lovely ride!

“long drive round!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Very pretty lake, huge, takes ages to drive round and the road is frighteningly narrow in places. Next time I would drive in from the car park end, look along the length of the lake, turn round, and drive back out the way I came in!

“BALA LAKE”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Stunning. Lots to do for little or big (adult) kids. Good cafe/food areas around and the villages around the lake are classic.
