Budapest's only natural urban beach opens at BudaPart
The SHO BEACH BudaPart, Budapest's only natural urban beach, opened on July 3 in the capital's new neighborhood, BudaPart, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The beach, located in Lágymányosi Bay, has high water quality, and besides swimming, it will also offer sporting facilities, culinary experiences, and a variety of activities throughout the whole summer.
Developer Property Market Ltd. decided already in the planning phase to develop the shore of Lágymányosi Bay as part of the development and to create a sandy beach in the capital.
"Given the location, the services already available and the unique, natural vibes of the neighborhood, we couldn't have asked for a better place. We are delighted that we can add another exciting leisure option to BudaPart and create this truly 21st century, modern beach in this complex mini-city,” said Gábor Koltai, operator of SHO BEACH BudaPart.
The sandy waterfront offers a range of options from morning coffee to mid-day meals and evening cocktails for a pleasant time outdoors. The SHO CHILL & GRILL beach bar offers beach food at a high standard, while the MÁK pop-up SHO BEACH offers a fine dining alternative under the direction of chef János Mizsei.
The catering units are in special modern floating houses, meaning that they will not get submerged even in case of a rising water level. The new beach, with its seaside atmosphere, will host a wide range of activities during the summer season, including cultural and gastronomic events – such as wine and pálinka tastings - and sports events as well.
BudaPart's first foundations were laid down four years ago. At BudaPart's public park, Kopaszi Dam, most of the services are back to their full capacity after the retreat of the pandemic. There are also three venues to watch UEFA EURO 2020 matches, and several shops, cafés, and supermarkets have opened at the bottom of the buildings. In addition, Dürer Kert, a popular venue for cultural events has recently moved to its new location next to the Danube.
"For those who did not believe in it so far, I think it's becoming more and more obvious what a unique and colorful neighborhood we are creating. It is not only beneficial for the tenants and workers of BudaPart, but also the people living in the neighborhood and indeed, in the capital. Whether it is about cultural events, culinary adventures, the beach, or musical experiences, BudaPart has everything you need to recharge and enjoy complete freedom, almost in the heart of the bustling Budapest. When designing BudaPart, we paid attention to the expectations of the people who live and work here, as well as to the richness of details, because we strongly believe that the space, the world around us is not dull or monotonous, but complex, rich in details and our surroundings create a dialogue with the community. The new SHO BEACH BudaPart has been also created based on that view," said Mihály Schrancz, managing director of Property Market.
