If you prefer natural water, we recommend D-Beach in Domony and the Postás beach in Szentendre, both of them within an hour’s drive from the city.

Domonyvölgy Lake - D-Beach

Passing Gödöllő and Máriabesnyő, turning towards Domonyvölgy and Lázár Equestrian Park, we only have to follow a sandy street to get to the beach, which you can only find if you are specifically looking for it. The sandy beach can be reached from Budapest by car in about 30-40 minutes or by a one-hour bus ride from Örs vezér tér.D-Beach Kft. was established in the spring of 2005. The goal was to create a high-quality, civilized natural park with 14,000 square meters of sandy beach, beach volleyball and beach soccer fields for the local and national championships.The beach and the leisure park are special and unique, the shoreline evokes a seaside atmosphere to which nothing similar can be found in the 30-kilometer agglomeration of ​​Budapest.  The installation of a stage is of significant importance where summer concert series are planned. The possibilities of D-Beach are expanded by the offers of the neighboring Lázár Equestrian Park, providing programs as one of the largest equestrian and coach driving centers in the country.  The former military training track is less than five kilometers from D-Beach, which is an excellent venue for offroad and quad races.

Postás beach in Szentendre

The closest to Budapest is the Postás beach in Szentendre, which is easily accessible by public transport.  You can paddle in the shallow water or build a sand castle, as it has a sandy shore. There is a dressing room and shower on the beach.Services include a football and tennis court for lovers of active recreation, the playground set up on the beach makes it ideal for families with small children and there is also a designated dog-friendly beach area.
