Thermal lake and eco-beach:
From the area of the Granite Spa 600-1000 m3 of water flows daily to the Banyavölgyi creek and finally to lake Kis-Balaton. From this flowing thermal water the Zalakaros Thermal Lake was created. The first stop of the guests arriving at the thermal lake is the specially designed reception building. Its most exciting point is the fifteen-meter-high observation tower belonging to the building, with its magnificent panorama. Next to the reception building is the 'sound pavilion', where sound generators of different heights can be used to learn about changes in sounds and their vibration length. The braver ones can try the science of walking on the water with the help of a water toddler on a thermal lake. There is a bridge connecting the two shores of the lake with an island in the middle. There is also a floating fountain on the lake. There are wooden columns of different sizes on four sides of the meditation space of the lights, always shining in one of the gaps in the sun so that the layout reveals the effect of the Earth's rotation. The trail leads through a tree-lined footpath between the trees on the forest side of the lake, with plants showing signs. On the lakeside playground there is a sandpit, a saucer swing, a carousel, a climbing chalet and a wooden house, with small brook winds. There is also an outdoor fitness park. Each machine comes with a manual and what part of the body is affected by the movement.
