The Látóképi water reservoir, situated nearby the Debrecen – Füzesabony highway no. 33 seventeen kilometres west of Debrecen, was constructed in year 1981. The reservoir, which is pooling water from the river Tisza, is characterized by a surface area of 60 acres, a mean water depth of 4 metres and from June through August a water temperature range of 22-26 oC.
The reservoir was initially utilized for irrigation and as a fishing pond; a 700 metres long lake shore beach section having been visited by naturists since year 1986, while the adjacent shore section hosts the Petőfi Surf Club. Local naturists have been initially organised within the Eastern Hungarian Branch of the Association of Hungarian Naturists, in 1991 they established their own Látóképi Association of Naturists. Voluntary work shaping the beach and having been performed by our members involves planting of trees, lawn-moving, construction of shower and open-air cooking facilities and parking lots.
Accessibility: Take the Debrecen - Füzesabony highway no. 33 in Eastern Hungary, and turn off onto the southward dirt road between kilometre signs 95 and 96 (GPS coordinates: N 47.5467184o, E 21.6360926 o). Follow the direction shown by the tall sign with the inscription “SZÖRFÖZÉS" (windsurfing) erected near the highway, behind a small darkbrown wodden cottage you will pass by in about 100 metres. An approximately 1500 metres long drive on the dirt road running on the lakeshore will take you directly to the naturist beach (GPS coordinates: N: 47.5575604 o, E: 21.4641215 o).
Please, keep in mind that during heavy rains the dirt road promptly gets muddy and slippery, therefore becomes impassable for passenger cars. Therefore, when it starts to rain, you would better leave the lakeshore immediately. However, in case the dirt road is still wet and seems impassable for cars, you may park nearby the highway and access the naturist beach by a 20 minutes walk.
