Kelta promenade is the continuation of Petőfi street. At the beginning is the Chapel, which was built by the Széchényi family in 1897 as a public donation in honor of Our Lady of Kármelhegyi, the mother of Magyars. It was designed by Ferenc Rózsa, a master builder from Székesfehérvár, and he also carried out the construction. The chapel was consecrated by Abbot Miklós Széchényi of Jáki, the later county bishop of Győr. Masses and concerts are also held in the chapel during the summer.

Next to the promenade and the Chapel, there is the only remaining rampart of the former Celtic castle, the Stefánia rampart, on top of which you can see Lake Balaton from a small vantage point. The promenade also got its name from here, since according to archaeological finds, B.C. ARC. century, Celtic culture flourished in the countryside. The earthen castle was built in this age, protected by an earth rampart from the south, the Magaspart ravine and the lake from the north.

Moving on, we reach the top of the 40-meter-high loess wall, the National Flag, from where we can enjoy a beautiful view of the opposite Tihany Peninsula and both basins of the lake. The predecessor of the recently restored National Flag was made from public donations and inaugurated in 1936.

From here, using the Spiral Staircase, you can reach the end of Kemping utca, the Nyugati beach and the Kvassay promenade in a matter of seconds.

If we do not turn off at the Spiral Staircase, but continue our journey along the Magaspart, we will arrive at the Balatonföldvár Maritime History Visitor Center.


This easy rowing tour is recommended for everyone who wants to get to know the quieter side of Lake Balaton, closer to nature. The tour starts from the Keleti beach in Balatonföldvár, from the Viharsarok Sailing Center and goes through the bay of Szántód.

The water depth is safe throughout, max. waist-high, the distance is also ideal for complete beginners and children.

It is possible to get to know the lesser-known, natural coastline of Balaton, the wildlife of the reeds, the parts that are not visible and accessible from the shore.

The tour can be completed with one- and two-person kayaks and with SUP (Paddle Board, stand-up paddle board).



Enjoy the fresh water of Lake Balaton just few minutes away from Villa Dorottya.
The part of the huge grassy area facing the street is mainly occupied by sandy sports courts - basketball, beach volleyball, and soccer fields. In the other parts, you can find shade under large trees, but there is also plenty of open space for sunbathing. In recent years, an animator has organized programs for both adults and children three times a week. It included a variety of leisure activities, from handicrafts to games of skill and various sports competitions.

The Viharsarok Sailing Center is located on the beach, where from the beginner to the advanced level, those looking for relaxation, recharging, good company and adventure are welcome with individualized services, timetables and trained instructors.




At the end of the Kvassay Promenade is the West Beach.

Here the shoreline widens, with large trees providing shade over a large part of the grassy area. The beach has a playground, a giant chess game and a concrete sun deck. Around the street entrance there are several refreshment stands, a social building built in 2001 and free toilets.





Dogs can also take a dip in Lake Balaton in Földvár, Balaton's newest dog beach.

Access to the water is facilitated by a ramp, and a separate toilet has been created for them in order to preserve the cleanliness of the area.

There is plenty of space to play in the almost 2,500 square meter area belonging to the dog beach area, and the many trees provide shade for dogs tired of bathing. The water deepens relatively quickly, but thanks to the reeds near the bathing area, it remains shallow near the shore, so you can not only swim in Lake Balaton, but also play ball, Frisbee, or even chase. Both dogs and their owners can enjoy Lake Balaton in safe and well-maintained conditions on site.
