And plenty of room even when it is very busy.

I am sure I would have enjoyed it, as there is shade, there are clean toilets, the beach itself is celan and comfortable, there is a bar ad the water access is good. So I do not mind paying for the entrance, as everythign they provide was worth paying for.

However, there were so many people we decided we'd rather not have a swim and went straight out.

There are 3 places in Keszthely where you can bathe, but after seeing Városi Strand, we didn't bother finding the other two.

The entrance fee is quite expensive if you plan on going every day (890 HUF this year) but good thing that after 7 pm they let you in for free. It's pretty cold to go in the water at that point but you can have a nice walk on the Balaton shore.
There is a sandy beach-like part where you get the feeling as if you were at the sea. Kids and fathers love it because the water is shallow and there is a lot of potential for sandcastles. The water is quite warm if you have at least a week of 30+ degrees behind you. Water temperature is at about 27-28C during July and August.
The place is clean, it has many facilities such as nice playgrounds, places where you can eat things from simple lángos to steaks and pasta, a nice pool in the shape of the Balaton lake, waterslides (not included in the entrance fee) etc. This summer there is even a beach-library installed with books and magazines to let even in German or English languages.

We spent a week at Keszthely and we went to Városi Strand almost every day enjoying the fun of sun+sand+water combined. You should try it also!

If it were free, it'd be okay, but costing $3, it was too expensive for a small, carnival-like grassy area. Better to go to Lidos or Libas strand.

If you have water loving kids this is the place to spend a day or two. My 6 and 9 year old daughters loved to play in the shallow water for hours. Arrive early as the beach can become quite crowded in the afternoon.
