Balaton’s best beaches of 2020

Lake Balaton’s best beaches have been revealed for 2020, as part of the annual Kék Hullám Zászló competition. Each year, the beaches are put into different categories based on several aspects.

This year, due to COVID-19, the top beaches of Balaton were announced a bit later than usual, but the list is finally here. There were a total of 35 beaches which were graded, HellóVidék reported. The goal of the Kék Hullám Zászló (Blue Wave Flag in English) competition is to encourage beaches on Lake Balaton to be developed and modernised further.

The Blue Wave Flags were distributed in Zamárdi this year, and the judges were the Association of Balaton Tourism, Balatoni Kör, Hungarian Tourism Agency, Women for Balaton Association, Balaton Highlands National Park, and employees of the Department of Public Health of the County Government Offices.

Some of the aspects of the competition included:
– being family friendly,
– the condition of the public bathrooms,
– and an environmentally friendly operation of the beaches.“There has never been a need for this competition like right now. We all believed and believe that there will be a Balaton summer. It feels really good that a lot of beaches applied. There have been countless beach developments in the past year, and there are countless on-going ones,”
– Gábor Lombár, the President of the Association of Balaton, said.If you happen to visit any of these beaches, make sure to try some of the amazing food offered at Lake Balaton.
