Camping is allowed in the island nestled in the middle of the lake. Kayaks, coracles, canoes, surf-board and sails can be wonderfully enjoyed in the waters. Swimming, photography or playing water volley ball followed by an upward trek to watch sunset-views completed by camp-fires and parties are the perfect ingredients for a vacation worth relishing.
