This is a peaceful spot not too far from Girona. We cycled to the lake from Girona. There was a nice lakeside place to stop for a coffee/snack. Good atmosphere with lots of people out walking/jogging/cycling etc.
A nice walk around. Walking, bycicle, car possible. If you walk and see, take 1hour and a half. Years ago you could ski. Now it is a rowing sanctuary. An electric boat let you visit from inside. Restaurants around. No public toilet as usually.
We walked for about 30 minutes to get to the lake from the center of Banyoles. The lake is teeming with wildlife a must for all nature lovers. If anyone likes boat trips you can barter with the owners about the price, if there is a group of people you can get the price down considerably.
Despite the cool weather there was a nice walk along the lakeside (an even longer trek right round the lake is possible but I think that would be better attempted in the summer), and the bird life around suggests the water is clean enough for swimming.
Despite going to the Costa Brava for years as a child, teen and adult it is only the last few years i've hired a car and driven around to see some of the things i'd never been to.

A friend and I took a Sunday trip by car from Girona to Banyoles and beyond. It was perfect weather, which brought out people everywhere to enjoy the lake, the craft stalls nearby and the restaurants and bars across the road. The location is family-friendly, with plenty of lawn area available for youngsters to run around.
I cycled by Lake Banyoles several times during a 10-day visit to the area. There are several restaurants along the lake with beautiful views and outdoor dining. Also a very nice walking/running pathway around the lake. Water is very clear.
A very pleasant and easy promenade of 8klms around the lake will offer you varied spaces. The forest path on the north side is probably the most enjoyable part , but you will encounter surprises around , such as the so pretty boat houses, or the reproduction of a neolithique village, may be the huge ducks sleeping amongst the reeds,... 更多
