Ábrahámhegy

Ábrahámhegy is one of the most popular bathing/swimming areas of Lake Balaton, because its mountains are semicircularly blocked from the west and north, protected from the winds, and on the other hand it is situated in a valley so its climate is warmer than its surroundings.

Ábrahámhegy is on the north side of Lake Balaton, along the main road No. 71. It is on the half-way between Badacsony-hill and Révfülöp, about 5-5 kms away from both places. 2,8 km long shore, 7 km2 field and 5 km2 surface belongs to the village.

The entrance of the beach and the waterblock were completly renewed and the beach-territory enlarged so that the people taking a sunbath were not disturbed by ballplayers. The capacity of the beach is 1060 persons. In the front of the beach there are a charged parking lots for 50 vehicles. The shore offers ideal possibilities to fishers for doing this fine sport.
