  • Palatinus is an outdoor only thermal bath and swimming pool complex on Margaret Island and as such it is only open from May to September. It has been there in for a long time with its tall shady trees...  more »
  • No place for a blanket. Lots of people of all kind during the Summer. Thieves and dirty people included. Not enough lockers and dressing rooms. 
  • In the Danube within Budapest swim not accepted: rapid current, navigable river, lack of clean water. But Margaret Island has a great "how to" beach with views of the Danube. Known As Palatinush Strand. But pool-a pool. Though under the open sky.

  • Big, fun place with quite good options of pools and slides. Also variety of typical hungarian snacks and foods with reasonable price. Only down side is that in the end of the summer (around September) it's closing at 7pm already, and they close the bathrooms for changing and kick you out of there before 7...
  • Very good outdoor beach, with many pools and food options; however there is usually an enormous crowd consisting of the riff-raff and there is also grime everywhere, last time someone left a diaper at the side of a pool :s as well as the pool was weird colored, full of hair and other stuff. There are many stories of stuff being stolen, thus I have put all my belongings into the lockers, I even kept my towel there and so nothing was stolen from me. Would be the very best beach if there was face control and more cleaning, now go only at your own risk :)
  • Often crowded, full of noisy and bothersome people (obviously including kids) . The pools are not particularly clean. There are always lines for getting in, getting out going to the slides. Also, it's not cheap at all. The location is good if you take the bus otherwise is a painfully long walk, and I'd not recommend it if I knew of better options.
  • Really nice bath at the Margit island. Good for hanging out and lot of space for children. Really good and greasy langos!
  • They have a great kids pool as well as hot springs for grown-ups to soak in. Stake out your place under a tree early, it fills up quickly, but the pools are quite huge and there's plenty of swimming for all. Not as atmospheric as the neoclassical Szécsény, but it gets the job done.
