I've spent two weeks while training in Banyoles in 2018. Lake was a bit cold to swim in (early March) but the views are stunning and roads and sport facilities in and around the town are great. Plus it's a short ride to Girona and...More

This is an ideal place to relax, just walk around the lake and enjoy the silence , just some sounds of nature at its best. The lake is very big , I imagine in summertime it's very busy. In wintertime it's nice and quiet. I...More

We have friends that live in Banyoles and they invited us to come and visit the town and it's beautiful lake. Our children tried out the canoeing club at the lake and the people there were wonderful.

Beautiful natural scenery. We had a nice lunch overlooking the lake at a cafe with a good value daily menu (The Set Cafe by the tennis club - not listed by Tripadvisor for some reason).

Scenery not particularly impressive, a lake with wooded areas surrounding it, tourist office closes at 1pm so no information by the time we arrived

This natural lake is a worthwhile visit. You can walk around it in a few hours, or jog or cycle. The old part of Banyoles is also interesting. On the way from the coast to Olot and the extinct volcanoes.

We stopped off here for lunch and very glad that we did. A lovely lake to stroll around. If you like cycling there is a good path which takes you around the lake. Safe area sectioned off for swimming. The water was crystal clear. Lovely...More

Whilst we were there, there were many people with dogs. There are certain areas clearly signposted where you could not take a dog but for the most post dogs were happily romping around.
