Head south of Munich and you will find a true gem of Bavaria – an Alpine wonderland in winter, a true swimming paradise in summer.
The waters of Lake Walchensee will invite you with their amazing splendor – vividly shimmering with shades of turquoise. There is a reason why they make an electrifying impression – they are among the cleanest waters in this region.
If you want to dry yourself in the Bavarian sunshine after you step out of the water, pebble beaches await you in large numbers around the shores of the lake.

Serra da Estrela is the highest mountain range and the first national park in Portugal. The protected status of the area means that its rugged beauty has been fully preserved, and thus the site offers plenty of opportunities for swimming in amazing scenery.
In the heart of the park, you will find many waterfalls and streams perfect for snorkeling, but the Loriga River Beach is what makes the biggest impression. The mountain springs provide access to the cleanest waters, and the site itself offers a spectacular view of idyllic Portugal.
