Hungary // Western Hungary //


The biggest, trashiest resort on Balaton, in summer Siófok throbs with crowds intent on sunbathing, boozing and clubbing. The two main resort areas are Aranypart (Gold Shore) to the east of the Sió Canal, and Ezüstpart (Silver Shore) to the west. Though the central stretch of shoreline consists of paying beaches, there are free beaches 1km further along at both resort areas (the Hungarian for beach is strand). You can rent windsurfing equipment and wakeboards from 1700Ft per hour and small sailing boats at most beaches.
