The season start brings plenty of options

Mirabella Camping is opening in April, and thus the off-season officially starts. This is an excellent time for a break and a much-needed opportunity to get out and about. At last, you have a bit more freedom in how you spend your downtime, whether you are joined by friends, four-legged companions and other loved ones. Weekends are great for an early taste of the summer holiday, but you can also skip work for a couple of days during the week for an unparalleled, relaxing experience. Springtime is the season to enjoy life, have great food and drinks, go for hikes, lounge about in the sun and rest and recuperate in the fresh air.


Camping holidays in the prettiest place near Lake Balaton

If you want to take a break during the off-season, consider heading to Zamárdi. The town lies along a beautiful section of the beach, many think it is the most beautiful you’ll find anywhere around Lake Balaton. One of the specialities of Mirabella Camping is its private beach, which allows you to stay right by the waterside during the spring season. You can also avoid the usual crowds at this time of year, and enjoy the endless calm of Lake Balaton like you own the lake. You don’t even have to leave the campsite to enjoy spectacular views of Tihany Peninsula just across the lake, which are unmatched anywhere else on the southern shore.


Tihany is just a stone’s throw away

If you bring a pair of binoculars to your camping holiday, you’ll be able to just sit on the campsite’s private beach and peek across the lake to the opposite side. Explore all the details and marvel at the beauty of Tihany Peninsula from the southern shore.

Szántód ferry port is right next door from Zamárdi, but actually you don’t even have to leave the town if you feel like popping over to Tihany for a nice cup of coffee because Szántód and Zamárdi used to be the same settlement. Although they are not administratively separate, they form a single built-up area. You can cross over to the northern shore on the frequent ferry service between Szántód and Tihany, which is an excellent start for a day trip filled with a variety of experiences.


Passage to Tihany

After enjoying a hearty breakfast at the campsite, head over to Szántód and hop onto the ferry to enjoy what is essentially a boat trip across Lake Balaton. Once you arrive in Tihany, the peninsula is yours to conquer. Take a walk across the atmospheric village and marvel at the wine cellars, artisan products and the scent of Tihany’s lavender fields. The highlight of the trip could be a visit to Tihany Abbey, but make sure you try one of the excellent patisseries, too. When you get tired, head back to the ferry port and once you’re back in Zamárdi you can take a rest at Mirabella Camping while still enjoying the beautiful views of Tihany.


Unparalleled views of the lake, mountains and flowers

One of the best things about Zamárdi is its excellent location, which offers one of the most beautiful vistas anywhere around Lake Balaton. If you are staying at Mirabella Camping, don’t miss out on visiting Kőhegy Lookout, which is just a stone’s throw away and a great place to take a few unforgettable photos with your loved ones. From the top of the mountain, you can see as far as Siófok to the right, with the spectacular Tihany Peninsula just opposite and Badacsony Mountain in the distance. To your left lie Szántód and Kőröshegy.

Kőröshegy happens to be one of the largest flower gardens of Hungary, and an excellent destination for a quick trip because the mountainside is absolutely covered in blossoms in April and early summer. Visitors to Kőröshegy can enjoy the tulip harvest in the spring or the lavender fields in the early summer.


Day trips and campsite adventures

If you’ve already found your trusty companions, all that’s left to do is set off on adventures together. There are a lot of attractive destinations nearby for short or longer trips.
