The tour takes you to the northeastern tip of Lake Balaton. We head north along the dense reed-covered bay of Fűzfői, broken only by the short stretch of beach at Tobruki.  Turning back, we find that Fűzfői Bay is more closed than its other counterparts. The turquoise blue bay was once dominated by a tavern, a few cellars and vineyards. In the second half of our tour, we will leave the promenade on the eastern side of the bay and, after the harbours, we will see the town beach, the end of our journey.

Author’s recommendation

The time and difficulty of paddling depends very much on the weather conditions.In the event of sudden strong swells and winds, a short and easy trip can instantly turn into a long and difficult challenge.
