  • Beautiful view, extreme sports, cheap, good parking, perfect for a group of friends, family or a romantic situation. Many places to take amazing photos and spend time looking the landscapes
  • Beautiful tropical lake
  • If you enjoy natural environment and water action go there
  • Beautiful scenery. The lake is home to wind sports like kite surfing and wind surfing. It doesn't get crowded much so there's plenty of room to foam around in your favorite water craft. The weather is often cloudy and a bit in the cooler side with the head wind, but overall, it's a great spot for water sports and scenery.
  • Very relaxing and enjoying and really recommend
