The water temperatures in summer reach almost 26°C make it warmer than the air in the mornings and evenings, and anyone who has stayed in a Lake Balaton property, Hungary, will tell you, there is nothing finer than relaxing on the beach in the evening, watching the sun set over the distant hills and tucking into a bottle of local wine, grown in one of the rich vineyards which surround Lake Balaton, Hungary.
