If you’re coming to spend a hot summer day in Banyoles, bring your swimsuit and enjoy a dip in the Estany! But take note! The Estany de Banyoles is a protected natural area and bathing is restricted to three spots, all on the east bank of the Estany: the Caseta de Fusta, open to the public free of charge and with a lifeguard onsite; the Banys Vells, a bar and terrace that also offers the possibility of bathing, and the Club Natació Banyoles, which sells tickets that allow entrance to non-members.

And if what you want to do is swim across the lake, you can take part in the Travessia de l’Estany (Cross-Lake Race), held every September when hundreds of swimmers cross the full length of the Lake, 2,115 m. With such illustrious winners as Mireia Belmonte, this competition celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2018, with 2,700 entrants.
