A nice lake where you can walk around and relax next to the sparkling water and super green forest. We went there by bicycle, with our books and we had a great time

Plenty of small shade areas to rest in and order lunch and they bring it to you. Food was delicious and good value for the six of us. The swim in the lake was refreshing after a hot morning.

great for nature hikes. You can walk around the entire lake. People are friendly and there are little shops. Be prepared for rain. The trail is hikeable in flip flops unless it rains then you must have good shoes it gets slippery.
