Gyékényes

Gyékényes

Information

Gyékényes is in the immediate vicinity of the Croatian border, only 30 min from Nagykanizsa by car. The gravel pits of Gyékényes have been operating since 1920 at the municipal border, and due to their gravel-beds the lakes are so clean that the range of vision underwater is up to 8 metres. The largest quarry lake is the 12-15 metres deep Kotró, but it goes as deep as 25-30 metres near the extraction. The diving base at the southern lakeside hosts a great number of international and domestic events every year, like the National Championship of Orientation Dive organized by the Hungarian Divers Federation. The owners of the lake sent quite a few safe shipwrecks to the bottom for spectacle, so the divers can find speed boats, cars and pedalos down there. Besides technical preparation, diving also provides a chance to discover the living environment underwater, because divers often encounter carps, breams, pikes and catfish. Mid-distance swimmers have 1 lap, long-distance swimmers have 3 laps around the island in the middle of the lake. Thanks to the transparency of the water, ropes are tensioned along the course, between some of the buoys to help spotting and staying on track.
