The oldest and most popular of the resort towns on Lake Balaton`s northern shore, Balatonfüred is well-known not only for its mineral spas, which have brought travelers to the area for nearly 250 years, but also for its world-class marina and its yachting opportunities. People also travel to Balatonfüred for sun and swimming, as evidenced by the numerous beaches dotting the shoreline, such as Esterházy Beach, Kisfaludy Beach, and Csopak Beach. Visitors are in for a treat if they get a chance to sample the famed local Welschriesling wine. Lakeside Tagore Promenade was named after prominent Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore, treated here in the 1920s. Moreover, the town`s many 18th- and 19th-century villas include Mor Jokai Memorial House.
