There are a lots of beaches where you can chill in the hot summer but Palatinus is one of the cleanest and biggest. Plus, this is on the middle of an island in the centre of the city. How awesome is that?!

Don't get me wrong, I love all of the baths but this one is unique and special in that it seems to be a local favorite which is fine. The water is the perfect temperature and all of the facilities is clean and modern.

A place we found from a "mistake" when we were walking on Margaret Island. It is not very famous, but it surprised us that it was very affordable and well maintained.

This is a great place to spend a day or an afternoon with kids to take a break from sightseeing. If you are walking, walk across Margit Hid (Margaret Bridge) and there is a road 1/2 way across the bridge leading directly to the island....More

This place is very modern. It is clean and nice. Three are 14pools, 4of them indoor. If you by car, park near to the Hotel and walk or take the bus. Margaret Island is amazing.

There are so many different pools to enjoy in this massive complex, my favourite area was the powerful jets that massage your back. Alas this complex is only open in the summer
