  • What a discovery of this lake, with its beaches, total relaxation. Highly recommended. It has an area under the trees where you can eat your own food, and a beach bar with affordable prices.

  • I haven't visited the sanabria lake area for years. They have managed to preserve tranquility and nature without massifying it for tourism. There are few lakes where you can swim without you worrying because there is a jet ski or speedboat nearby. Place with beautiful walking routes, and the gastronomy of the area second to none. Highly recommended.

  • Lovely place, and lovely lake. The water is extremely clean and not too cold. Its like a small beach and the area has benches and a restaurant, is perfect for the whole day. lots of trees for shadows and parking just there. We went with kids and it was extremely fun. you can rent some pedal boats also, and there is a small playground. The site is fab and you have few miles away the "Iberico Wolf Center", and the ancient village of Sanabria with the castle and walls, and many path for hiking. We loved it!
